Ann Wilson, known the world over as a founder and lead singer / songwriter of the barrier-breaking band Heart, is releasing a new record with her band Tripsitter, Another Door, on September 29th. The song “This Is Now” is a worldwide focus track on all digital service providers. Album pre-orders are available here.
The following footage, featuring Ann and her solo band discussing the song “This Is Now”, comes from the forthcoming featurette, Walking Through Another Door.
Prior to starting the 2023 tour, Ann Wilson & Tripsitter finished Another Door, a record of all-original material, which marks the first time since the ‘70s that Ann has written a full-length album collectively with a band. Tripsitter features Tony Lucido (bass), Ryan Wariner (guitars), Sean T Lane (drums), and Paul Moak (guitars and keyboards). Tom Bukovac (guitars) was also a primary contributor. Another Door marks the first time in her career where Ann was the sole lyricist and her presence on a record has never been greater.
Ann says, “This is an exciting time in my creative life; so much new and fresh to remind me of why I love my calling!”
On November 24th, as part of PBS special programming “Ann Wilson & Tripsitter: Live In Concert” will debut on over 100 PBS stations, (check local listings). Pre-taped at the Brooklyn Bowl in Nashville in July this live concert will feature songs from Another Door, alongside her classics, including “Barracuda,” “Crazy On You,” “Magic Man,” and several others.
The cover for Another Door was created by StormStudio which began in the early 1990s with Storm Thorgerson, Peter Curzon, Rupert Truman, and Dan Abbott. Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell co-founded Hipgnosis, who between 1968 and 1983 created artworks for the likes of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Paul McCartney & Wings, 10cc, AC/DC, Genesis, Peter Gabriel, and many others. Following Storm’s passing in 2013 Aubrey Powell has worked closely with StormStudio on numerous projects since.
