New Heart Album In 2012
Plus, expect a band autobiography around the same time
Gibson reports that the group is prepping a new album with producer Ben Mink, who co-produced the band's 2010 album, Red Velvet Car.
Nancy Wilson told Billboard that fans can expect some heavy guitars this time around.
"We've got most of it written already," Wilson disclosed. "We're writing again and working on songs with 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... We're still kind of polishing and buffing the rough demos so far, but we're getting excited."
The Wilsons are also working with rock journalist Charles Cross (Heavier Than Heaven, Led Zeppelin: Shadows Taller Than Our Souls) on a memoir.
"We're telling the whole story," the guitarist said. "I think it's important to be kind of brutally honest without making anyone else feel bad in any way, if possible. There's a lot of stuff you remember that's like, 'Wow, why did I do this with that person?' or 'What was I thinking?!' or 'How controlling was so and so?' It's definitely not a sensational, telltale book, because that's never who we are. There's going to be some wild parties and some failed relationships, but not too much more dark stuff really."
