New songs and reinvented songs

Ann Wilson on KSLX:  “We’ve kept making records, we’ve kept playing shows. Sometimes we’re up, sometimes we’re down, but there we are. We love doing it, I think people can relate to that. We don’t try to be something we’re not. We’ll go to where the people live [chuckle] and they appeciate that.”

“Yes, we are. We are just finishing up a new record here in L.A. And it’s being rough-mixed right now. We have one more song — it’ll be out before the tour starts. Right now, the working title is Iconograph. It’s some new songs that have never been heard before; some really super old under-the-radar songs that we have reinvented.”

The reinvented songs are likely to include “One Word”,  “Johnny Moon” and “Heaven”. Read more here.

Ann Wilson: New Album by June

Heart will be busy on the road for a good part of 2016, but frontwoman Ann Wilson says the band also is working on a new studio album that may see the light of day this year.

“We’re definitely working on new stuff,” the singer revealed recently to ABC Radio. “We have about four new songs now and we only need a few more and we’ll have enough for a new full-length record, which should be ready by June.”

Wilson pointed out that Heart has a record label that’s very anxious to release the project, adding that before she and her band mates turn in the album, they “have to make sure it’s truly great, which we’re in the process of doing.”

Ann told ABC Radio that the new album will be a bit different from Heart’s previous studio effort, 2012’s Fanatic, which she noted “was our heaviest album we ever did in terms of banging and crashing, big guitars and all that kind of stuff.” Wilson maintained that the upcoming record “will have more contours.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer cited as an example of the new album’s more diverse sound is a song written by her sister, Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson, which Ann said is “very sweet and just tugs at your heart.”

The singer, meanwhile, also reported that Nancy will “be doing more singing on the new record too, which I’m really happy about.”  Ann noted that her sister “always wants to sing but then at the last minute she backs out for some reason. I think she’s shy.”

Herald: Wilson said she has plans for both Heart and her solo efforts in the year ahead. “It’s a great thing for an artist to get to have lots of different places to go,” Wilson said. “I still work with Heart. I still enjoy it, and we have a whole year touring with Heart coming up as well as The Ann Wilson Thing. I’m just working two jobs and loving it — using all of myself.” More from this interview at the Herald.

Park Record: Wilson will continue to make her mark with the Ann Wilson Thing and Heart. “We’re currently working on a new EP for the Ann Wilson Thing, which will be out at the first of the year,” she said. “Heart is also working on a new project that will be out in the summer.” More from this interview at the Park Record.
