There is still silence in the Heart Camp but Ann Wilson is feeling inspired. The singer is planning a new covers album called “Songs for the Living, Vol. 1” Ann said via a statement, “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, 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.”

Included in the collection will be her interpretations on Winehouse’s “Back to Black,” Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me” and Eagles’ “Life in the Fast Lane.”

Wilson adds, “Once again I am pushing my limits as a singer and it is thrilling work, 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.”

As reported earlier Wilson will hit the road this summer with Jeff Beck and Paul Rodgers for the “Stars-Align” tour. – by John Beaudin
