Music News- Check out this advanced listen, below, of Heart's Ann Wilson's heartfelt take on John Lennon’s “Across the Universe” for an upcoming Billy Sherwood-produced tribute to the Beatles. A Beatles tribute is certainly a challenge, but Mr Sherwood is gathering an amazing group of all-star guests to work on the project, while participating as a multi-instrumental throughout.
For “Across the Universe,” which originally appeared on the Beatles’ Let It Be album, Sherwood added a melodic turn on a Spector bass. “The record is coming out very cool, with interesting versions of classics,” Sherwood says. “I did some Tony Levin-type fretless on this one. I’m a huge fan of Tony’s playing.”
