Heart’s Ann Wilson To Pay Tribute To Chris Cornell, Tom Petty, Etc. On New Album

Heart’s Ann Wilson is working on a new tribute album which will honor late musicians such as Chris Cornell, Tom Petty, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, and more. She said the following about that:

“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!”
