Prior to starting their 2023 tour, Ann Wilson & Tripsitter finished Another Door, a record of all-original material, which marks the first time since the ‘70s that Ann Wilson has written a full-length album collectively with a band. The song “This Is Now” is out now.
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. This record is also the first time in her career that Ann Wilson was the sole lyricist.
Ann Wilson shares:
This is an exciting time in my creative life; so much new and fresh to remind me of why I love my calling!
The cover art 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 were also the co-founders of 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.
Last year Ann Wilson sang with Disturbed’s frontman David Draiman on the duet, “Don’t Tell Me,” from their recently released Divisive album, and she recently sang on Dolly Parton’s forthcoming rock record Rock Star, for the song “Magic Man”.
