David Draiman names which disturbed song is one of his favorites he’s ever written

Disturbed just released their eighth album last week (November 18th), so they have a good catalog of songs under their belt. David Draimanhowever admitted that one of the tracks on Divisive is one of his favorites that he ever wrote.

“Don’t Tell Me” is the penultimate track on the album. It is the only ballad in the new set of songs, and it is also the first ever Disturbed song to feature contributions from another vocalist, who Heart‘s Ann Wilson appears on it with Draiman.

“She’s the best, period,” Draiman praised Wilson Loudwire nights hosted by Toni Gonzalez. “There’s nobody, I think, who’s ever lived that has the kind of voice that Ann has. She’s the most powerful female rock vocalist I can ever remember, and I’ve always been a massive fan of her work and a massive fan of Heart in general.”

Wilson was apparently already a fan of Disturbed’s cover of “The Sound of Silence,” but Draiman’s first communication with the singer was when he and Bruce Dickinson named her as their favorite female vocalist on Twitter. Wilson thanked them both, and Draiman contacted her directly, suggesting they work together one day.

When Disturbed originally recorded “Don’t Tell Me,” Draiman sang on the entire track, then listened back and realized Wilson belonged on it.

“I sent her the song and she loved it,” he recalled, adding that they then went into the studio together to work on it. “It was such a rewarding and overwhelming experience. She still has chops for days, it’s crazy, her skills… Our voices just sound beautiful together. It’s one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written, so I very high hopes for it.”

Loudwire Nights with Toni Gonzalez airs every night from 7 p.m. ET. You can tune in anytime, anywhere and from anywhere here or by downloading Loudwire app.
