Ann Wilson has posted a video that previews a track on her upcoming album, Immortal.

She calls David Bowie's "I'm Afraid of Americans" "timely."

"For my David Bowie tribute, I chose 'I'm Afraid of Americans.' He had characters; he invented himself and reinvented himself over and over and over. It's a sardonic look by a British person at America and Americans. And just sort of poking fun, mocking some of the more vain and materialistic and crazy things that Americans do."

To give it "a global feel," Ann surrounded the lyrics with "the sounds of the rest of the world. You hear, you feel India, China, Germany and Italy -- all the different places that have sound effects that come in through the song."

Wilson regrets never having met Bowie. She calls him "a fantastic artist and musician, what a mind! I would like to have sat down with him over him and just talked."

Immortal, which also features Ann's take on the Eagles' "Life in the Fast Lane," Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street" and Lesley Gore's "You Don't Own Me," goes on sale in September.
