Ann Wilson Shares ‘You Don’t Own Me’ Video

Heart singer Ann Wilson has released the official music video for her cover version of late 60s pop singer Lesley Gore’s empowerment anthem “You Don’t Own Me.” The song is the second track from her latest album Immortal. The album, produced by longtime Heart associate Mike Flicker, released on September 14 through Wilson’s new record label BMG. Allman Brothers Band’s ex-lead guitarist Warren Haynes makes a guest appearance on “You Don’t Own Me.” Immortal features 10 musically diverse tracks that pay tribute to some of Wilson’s influences and friends who’ve recently passed. Wilson recently discussed her reasoning for including the 1960s track on the album, telling Yahoo!, “‘You Don’t Own Me’ first came out at a time when Lesley Gore was only a teenager. It was a really bold move for a teenage girl to stand up and face her boyfriend and say, ‘Hey, I don’t belong to you. That was a huge move back then, and it just grew and grew into what they now call a feminist anthem. But when I do it, I think it’s more about respect. It could be about anybody. It’s for anybody now. The song has really become a lot more universal than just a feminist anthem. It is one, but it goes a lot farther than that. And that’s why I chose it, because in this era of people standing up for their choice of who they are, they can marry who they want. They can say, ‘Me too.’ They just should have respect, and they can proclaim it.” Copyright(c) 2018 All Rights ReservedLess «
