Ann Wilson of Heart

Eyebrow-raising title aside, it sounds like one to check out: Ann Wilson of Heart has announced on her social media pages that she is working on what she’s calling “Project Dead Guys,” a collection of covers of songs associated with David Bowie, Tom Petty, Chris Cornell, Leonard Cohen and others.

Wilson wrote:

“Happy New Year Humans!

“In this new year, you may have seen a ‘coming soon’ message and new image on our social media sites.

There are a lot of changes in the works. I am most excited about the recording endeavor 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 honor these great artists is my deepest pleasure and Mike Flicker (original Heart producer; Dreamboat Annie, Magazine, Little Queen, Dog and Butterfly, & Bebe le Strange etc.) 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!

“In other AWoH news, in a few days we will be returning to the road, touring the U.S.A. We’re excited to be back, performing intimate shows for y’all. We hope you can join us for this unique experience again this year. Here is a current list of shows, which is growing weekly.

“Ring in the new!

“Love and Respect,


Ann Wilson and her sister and Heart bandmate Nancy have been somewhat estranged from each other recently due to an incident that involved Ann’s husband allegedly attacking Nancy’s children. Ann has also noted publicly that she does not want to continue performing Heart’s old music, that she wants the band to evolve. As of now the future of that four-decade-old enterprise remains in limbo.
