Ann Wilson of Heart has unveiled the single “This Is Now” from her upcoming album with her backing band Tripsitter. The LP, titled Another Door, arrives on September 29th.
Wilson wrapped up recording sessions for Another Door before her 2023 tour. The album features all-original material, and marks the first time since the 1970s that the singer-songwriter has released a full-length album collectively with a band. In addition to Wilson, Tripsitter features bassist Tony Lucido, guitarist Ryan Wariner, drummer Sean T Lane, and guitarist-keyboardist Paul Moak. The album also features contributions from guitarist Tom Bukovac.
Another Door makes a bit of history for Wilson, as it’s the first time in her career where she was the sole lyricist. “This is an exciting time in my creative life; so much new and fresh to remind me of why I love my calling,” she said in a statement.
Meanwhile, on November 24th, Ann Wilson & Tripsitter: Live in Concert will debut on more than 100 PBS stations. Check local listings for specifics. Wilson and the band taped the show at the Brooklyn Bowl in Nashville in July 2023. The set features songs from Another Door, as well as Heart classics.
StormStudio — known for creating artwork for Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney & Wings and more — is behind the cover for Another Door. The company was started by the late legendary album artist Storm Thorgerson.
Wilson recently wrapped up a North American summer tour. In June, she revealed that she is writing new Heart music with her sister Nancy.
