ANN WILSON IS 65!

THE ANN WILSON THING is a tour :)

Ann Wilson will be hitting the road on her own, on top of the Heart dates. Two dates have been announced already! Just seven shows are planned for 2015.

Annapolis, Maryland, gets the first two dates at the Rams Head on Stage on October 9th & 10th!

From Heart:

Ann Wilson’s musical gifts are legendary. As a songwriter and lyricist, she has created a truly impressive body of work (“Crazy on You,” “Barracuda,” “Magic Man,” “Dog & Butterfly,” “Straight On”, “Even it Up,” “Mistral Wind,” and many, many more). However, her greatest gift, and first “calling” is singing. Her voice is considered to be among the best ever, with its vast range, amazing power and sheer musicality. It has inspired legions of great singers, across every genre of music. Witness the number of times “Alone” has been performed on American Idol! Ever since Dreamboat Annie, Ann has been performing with her equally talented sister, Nancy Wilson, as Heart, thrilling hundreds of thousands of concert fans annually. Now it’s time for Ann to do something she’s always dreamed of, and stretch out as a singer performing things not in the heart-shaped box. Introducing THE ANN WILSON THING. Beginning in October 2015, The Ann Wilson Thing will be performing in select venues. Ann says, “I’m excited to play unusual songs in small places. I am excited to push my creative and vocal boundaries.” Here’s a chance for Heart fans to add something a little different to their musical lives. The Ann Wilson Thing won’t replace Heart but will be a new experience for existing Heart fans, as well as for new fans who love BLUES with a ROCK edge. Ann adds, “I love the blues. The Ann Wilson Thing gives me an opportunity to rock the blues up close and personal.”

Another live show coming to CD!

Those misty labels must really like Heart, cos another old live show has just been announced on factory pressed CD. Fresh after the just released 1980 show and while we still await the 1987 show to actually ship, now a 1976 radio broadcast gets the same treatment. What all these releases share, is the fact that the actual audio-material is already widely spread among Heartmongers in several forms: factory pressed CD bootlegs that were never sold over the counter, CD-r’s, digital forms and likely even vinyl. What all of these releases also share, even these CD’s that can be bought at Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk: the fact that Ann & Nancy probably don’t see a single dime.

In recent years we’ve had more and more of these releases, many overseas. Remember the competing CD’s of the 1978 show? Remember “Live on air“?

Anyway: if anyone is interested, here’s the deal on the new one: PRE ORDER ON USA AMAZON.COM

Radio broadcast, October 16th, 1976, Cleveland. This legendary recordings captures the full show of HEART. The tracklist is:

1. Main Stage (Instrumental)
2. Heartless
3. Sing Child Sing
4. Dreamboat Annie
5. Siver Wheels/magazine
6. Soul Of The Sea
7. White Lightning And Wine
8. Devil Delight
9. Magic Man
10. Crazy On You
11. Rock’N’Roll

Heart works on EP & Album!

Ann & Nancy in 2014

Ann & Nancy in 2014

In these past months things got a little confusing for the Heartmongers as Ann & Nancy were talking to the press about recording new songs. Sometimes they were referring to an EP and sometimes to a full album. CleveScene.com has the answer:

As they travel across that landscape, they’re starting to work on new music, as Ann Wilson reveals. “We’re not in a recording studio. We’ve been recording live off the stage in soundchecks, because you don’t really have to go into a traditional studio anymore,” she explains. “We have been recording, but it’s been off the stage. And then we’re going to take the tracks that we get off the stage and you know, mess with them!” Nancy Wilson hints that the first bit of new material might make its way to fans soon in the form of an EP. “We have a new song that we haven’t quite finished yet, but there’s also some live versions of stuff like ‘Let Me Roll It’ and some different things that we’ve been recording the last two runs to probably release along with the new song. So an EP is coming pretty soon.” The next full-length Heart album, according to Ann Wilson, might be a little bit further down the road. “You know, we’re still in the songwriting process and we’re touring at the same time. So when you’re trying to give your attention to two things, it might slow them both down. So that’s where we are right now with that. We’re still working on it!”

Added June 17th 2015: Though not yet spotted in the stores, you can now buy it on iTunes (or listen to the samples). The tracks on iTunes are listed as REMASTERED. By listening I confirmed that this is indeed the -well circulated among Heartmongers around the world- 1987 Portland Oregon show.
