Fans have been waiting for a while for Ann Wilson’s cover of the Alice In Chains song “Rooster” from 1992.Ann has just released her version and she describes the video as “really dark.”
The new video is loaded with war and macabre imagery. Ann made the video over a year ago, but her label released a different video instead. Her version of “Rooster” was recorded back in 2020.
Ann told the Seattle Times, "I wanted to remain true to the song as much as possible, but I wanted to make it my own. But really, honoring the original spirit of the song, which is cockroaches and flies and all this kind of stuff.”
She added, "Before I knew what form the MoPOP thing was gonna take with the live performances, I made a video for 'Rooster' that was really dark. They decided not to use it because they wanted it to be a bunch of live performances. But sometime I'll put that video out because it's really cool. It's just maggots and war stuff and darkness and insanity."
