Ann Wilson Announces New Album
Ann Wilson will release another solo album this spring, she announced this week.
The 11-track collection–titled Fierce Bliss–is set for release on April 29, and will feature new tracks –including the previously released “Black Wing”–and covers curated by Wilson with special guests.
Wilson recorded covers of Queen‘s “Love of My Life” with guest vocals by country star and current Eagles touring member Vince Gill, while acclaimed blues-rocker Kenny Wayne Shepherd plays guitar on Robin Trower’s “Bridge of Sighs” and an original song called “Missionary Man.” Wilson also enlisted Gov’t Mule, the group led by former Allman Brothers Band singer/guitarist Warren Haynes, who also co-wrote the tunes with Ann–to assist in the studio for the recordings of “Gladator” and “Angel’s Blues.”
Another new track–“Greed”–can be heard in a video clip on Youtube.
“Greed’ is that thing in our animal nature that makes us want MORE,” Wilson explains about the song’s theme. “Whether it be money, sex, power or ecstasy, it fires our craving! It happens with all of us. When you turn around and catch yourself making decisions because you want the money, or because you’re caught in the headlights of glory, well, those are greedy moments.”
You can pre-order Fierce Bliss now. Here’s the full track list:
