Heart’s Nancy Wilson is working on a solo album; her first solo release, expected to drop early next year.

“There have been so many times I was asked about when I would ever put out a solo album,” Nancy shared. “Well, the time is now. Having been unable to tour and having spent so much time at home has made a good space for creating new music.”

Nancy is set to release the first single from the record, a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “The Rising” on October 23rd.

“Because of these troubled times we’re living in, ‘The Rising’ has been on my mind,” she shared. “I wanted to make something uplifting and aspirational for those of us who are suffering with all this sickness and loss. I hope this song can help lift our spirits.”
