Ann Wilson, the iconic voice of Heart, is set to release a new album titled ‘Another Door’ with her band, Tripsitter. This exciting album drops on 13th October 2023, with a vinyl release coming on 24th November. Remarkably, this is the first time since the ’70s that Ann has collaborated on an entire album with her band.
In a significant highlight of her illustrious five-decade career, Ann penned the lyrics for all the songs on this album, marking a personal first.
The talented lineup accompanying Ann on ‘Another Door’ includes Tony Lucido on bass, Ryan Wariner on guitars, Sean T Lane on drums, Paul Moak with guitars and keyboards, and Tom Bukovac contributing his guitar skills.
Fans got a sneak peek when Ann Wilson & Tripsitter unveiled the lyric video for their lead single, ‘This Is Now.’
Sharing her enthusiasm for the album, Ann stated, “It’s a rejuvenating phase in my artistic journey. Every moment reminds me of my profound love for music!”
News has it that UK fans can anticipate tour dates in 2024 in connection to ‘Another Door.’ While Ann had plans for UK concerts in July 2020, the pandemic caused a change of plans. However, she did grace the stage at Wacken Open Air last summer, treating fans to tunes from ‘Another Door’ and timeless Heart hits.
The distinct album artwork for ‘Another Door’ comes courtesy of StormStudio, continuing the legacy of the late Storm Thorgerson.
On another note, Dolly Parton recently gave a nod to Heart’s song ‘Magic Man’ with a cover featuring Ann. This duet will appear on Parton’s upcoming ‘Rockstar’ album. Parton shared her excitement, saying, “Collaborating with Ann on ‘Magic Man’ was a dream. We even added our own twist to the original. I truly believe it turned out magical!”
