Ann Wilson is in the studio recording a new album honoring fellow musicians whose work she greatly admires and have sadly have passed away. Songs for the Living Vol. 1 will include material by Tom Petty, David Bowie, Chris Cornell, Glenn Frey and more with an undisclosed summer release date.
“Once again I am pushing my limits as a singer and it is thrilling work,” she said. “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.”
While she works on the project, she’ll break away to play a few headlining dates this month and into April. She’s also touring with Jeff Beck and Paul Rodgers July 18 to Aug. 26.
