Ann Wilson Confirms New Covers Album


Ann Wilson of Heart has announced plans for a solo album of covers, titled Songs for the Living, Vol. 1. The release, due out this spring from BMG, will include tracks from the singer's favorite artists and Wilson says she's thrilled to share the new offering.

"It's a project very dear to me — a collection of songs by artists who have departed in the last several years, including Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, Tom Petty, Chris Cornell and Amy Winehouse, to name a few," Wilson explains. "I feel these souls have made a real, lasting contribution to the art of the popular song and to honor them is my deepest pleasure."

She adds:

"Once again I am pushing my limits as a singer and it is thrilling work," Wilson says. "It's my way of showing gratitude for these amazing expressions in words and music. This record was made in the old-school way... on an actual tape recorder, so the sound is vibrant, present and powerful. This sound will not just massage the listener's ego, it will stoke their heart and soul."
