Netflix has a new show coming to it’s lineup at the end of the month, and since it shares the same title with a classic Fleetwood Mac song sung by Stevie Nicks, it should come as no surprise that Nicks can be heard singing the show’s theme.
The new version of the song is simply a piano and Nicks’ distinctive vocals. In a statement to Entertainment Weekly, Nicks said, “I’m very excited for the world to hear ‘Gypsy’ more like I wrote it — on piano. I am very proud of this version.”
According to Netflix:
Gypsy is a ten-part psychological thriller that follows Jean Holloway (Naomi Watts), a Manhattan therapist with a seemingly picturesque life who begins to develop intimate and illicit relationships with the people in her patients’ lives. As the borders of Jean’s professional life and personal fantasies become blurred, she descends into a world where the forces of desire and reality are disastrously at odds.
In addition to Watts, Gypsy also stars Billy Crudup (Spotlight) as Jean’s husband Michael Halloway, Sophie Cookson (Kingsman) as Sidney, Lucy Boynton (Murder on the Orient Express) as Jean’s patient Allison, and Karl Glusman (Nocturnal Animals) and Jean’s patient Sam.
Gypsy was written by Hollywood newcomer, Lisa Rubin. The series is directed by Fifty Shades Of Grey’s Sam Taylor Johnson as well as Victoria Mahoney and Coky Giedroyc. It is produced for Netflix by Universal Television and executive produced by Lisa Rubin, Naomi Watts, Sean Jablonski, and Liza Chasin.
The first season of Gypsy premieres on Friday, June 30th.
