HEART'S ANN WILSON STEPS OUT WITH HER FIRST SOLO ALBUM
Posted by the Asbury Park Press on 08/26/07
BY LARRY RODGERS
GANNETT NEWS SERVICE

When it comes to women in popular music, none have rocked harder or longer than sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, the core of Heart.

Since their monster debut album, 1976's "Dreamboat Annie," the sisters have racked up hits (including "Crazy on You," "Magic Man" and "What About Love?") and inspired countless female performers to take a shot in a business still dominated by men in some quarters.

After taking a decade-long break in the 1990s, Heart returned in 2004 with "Jupiter's Darling" and started touring again.

"Hope & Glory," 57-year-old Ann's first solo album, will be released on Sept. 11 and features covers of classic songs about war and peace, such as Pink Floyd's "Goodbye Blue Sky" and Bob Dylan's "A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall."

Guests include Elton John, Rufus Wainwright, k.d. lang and Wynonna.

"Little Problems, Little Lies" [Aug. 28th, 2007|07:31 pm]
Ann Wilson of Heart

lostonbroadway
From Ann's POV on the song "Little Problems, Little Lies," the closing song on Ann's forthcoming CD, Hope and Glory:

We decided to write from the very first day, but it took me a really long time to figure out who I was and what my lyrics could be inside this album. But then I thought why don’t I be a soldier in Iraq lying down to die, bewildered, and summing things up.

I wanted to keep it simple and use the language someone would use at a time like that. When we first started working on the album, some people were like “Do we dare take some sort of global, political stand?” Because generally there’s music and there’s this other thing way over there –- politics.

But it’s become so pervasive, it’s all fused together now so I don’t think anyone has to worry. I believe this is good music for people to hear, to help to contemplate our world now.

Thanks to TDHS for the lyrics ♥
