ANN WILSON of HEART is preparing for her first-ever solo television special. The iconic vocalist will film her newly added April 11 show at the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles, IL for an upcoming special to coincide with the release of her new solo album IMMORTAL that’s due out this summer via BMG (exact release date TBA).

For this special (airdate and additional details TBA), ANN and her band will perform songs from the Heart catalogue, tracks from her solo career and highlights from the new album.

While the full track listing is still being unveiled, IMMORTAL will feature some of the singer’s favorite musicians and songs by paying homage to those lost in the past few years, including Lesley Gore‘s “You Don’t Own Me,” Amy Winehouse‘s “Back to Black,” and The Eagles’ “Life in the Fast Lane” in honor of Glenn Frey.

For the new release, ANN teamed with original Heart producer Mike Flicker (Dreamboat Annie, Magazine, Little Queen, Dog and Butterfly and Bebe Le Strange, among others).
