Nancy Wilson (Heart) talked to Meltdown of Detroit radio station WRIF about her upcoming debut solo album, which is tentatively due in February or March 2021 via Carry On Music.
She also mentioned that the album will feature Duff McKagan (Guns N Roses), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters) and Sammy Hagar.
Here’s what Nancy said:
“[The] title is ‘You And Me’. That’s a song on the album, called ‘You And Me’. And it just turned out really great. It’s a song my longtime collaborator friend Sue Ennis and [I] wrote together. We kind of blended two different songs that we had written about our moms, actually, and we made a new song out of it called ‘You And Me’. And it’s just so simple, I just thought, ‘Okay, well, that’s pretty easy to remember.
”I’ve got one song that I wrote with Duff McKagan [Guns N Roses] and Taylor Hawkins [Foo Fighters]. They had a jam that they shared with me, and I finished it. And it’s called ‘Party At The Angel Ballroom’. And actually, I covered [Simon & Garfunkel’s] ‘The Boxer’, which I did with Heart last year, with Sammy Hagar guesting on that.
”He’s a buddy. He sounds really good on that. I have this other big rocker. I said, ‘Do you wanna sing on this big rocker?’ And he’s, like, ‘It’s kind of expected. It would be a little less interesting.’ I said, ‘Okay. What about ‘The Boxer’?’ And he’s, like, ‘I love that song. I’ve loved that song forever.'”
