Ann Wilson Covering Tom Petty, Chris Cornell, David Bowie, Amy Winehouse and More on New ‘Immortal’ LP

On September 14, Ann Wilson of Heart will release Immortal, a collection of songs very special to her heart.

Featuring 10 new recordings of songs made popular by other artists, Wilson is taking the opportunity to pay homage to some of her personal musical heroes that we’ve lost in recent years.

Said Wilson of the album, which previously had a working title of Songs For the Living Vol. 1:

“The original working titles evolved as the concept for the album evolved; a little bit at a time. As my understanding of what I had undertaken grew and clarified, I realized a larger truth; that the souls may have departed but the songs will forever be their resonances. These are the poets of our time and their expressions must be handed down. Poetry is lasting and elemental like carvings in rock.”

The track listing:

“A Different Corner” (George Michael)
“A Thousand Kisses Deep” (Leonard Cohen)
“Back to Black” (Amy Winehouse)
“Baker Street” (Gerry Rafferty)
“I Am the Highway” (Chris Cornell, Audioslave)
“I’m Afraid of Americans” (David Bowie)
“Life in the Fast Lane” (Joe Walsh, The Eagles) in honor of Glenn Frey
“Luna” (Tom Petty)
“Politician” (Cream) in honor of Jack Bruce
“You Don’t Own Me” (Lesley Gore)
