[tweetmeme] [fbshare type=”button”] HEART’s Nancy Wilson has told Billboard.com that work has already started on the follow-up to 2010’s Red Velvet Car.
“We’ve got most of it written already,” Wilson says. “We’re writing again and working on songs with (Red Velvet Car) producer Ben Mink. This time we’re gonna go a little more heavy rock, a little more electric guitar. And so far so good; I think there’s some really amazing songs already.”
Wilson says the sisters and Mink have demoed “about eight songs already,” working “in various hotel rooms…with microphones and his laptop and a couple of speakers and some guitars and notebooks. Me and Ann work on stuff independently of each other and we bring our notebooks, and (Mink) brings musical ideas, too, and we write together and just put everything together.”
Meanwhile, the Wilson have joined forces with Seattle-based writer Charles Cross (Led Zeppelin, JIMI HENDRIX) on a memoir they hope to publish in 2012. “We’re telling the whole story,” Wilson says. “I think it’s important to be kind of brutally honest without making anyone else feel bad in any way, if possible.”
