Heart vocalist Ann Wilson has revealed that she’ll record a solo album in honour of her deceased musical heroes.

Heart have been on hiatus since Ann Wilson’s husband Dean Wetter was handed a suspended sentence for reportedly assaulting sister Nancy’s twin sons in 2016.

Nancy has gone on to record and perform live with Roadcase Royale – and now Ann has revealed her future plans.

She says in a statement (via Radio.com): “There are a lot of changes in the works. I am most excited about the recording endeavour we have just begun that has a working title, ‘PDG’ (project dead guys).

“It’s a project very dear to me – a collection of songs by artists who have departed in the last several years: Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, Tom Petty, and Chris Cornell to name a few.

“To honour these great artists is my deepest pleasure and Mike Flicker is working with me on this new record. It is thrilling work and I can’t wait for you to hear what we are doing!”

Further album details will be revealed in due course.

Ann Wilson will kick-off a North American tour later tonight in Charenton. Find details below.
