Nancy Wilson has announced the release of her first solo album, due in 2021.
“There have been so many times I was asked about when I would ever put out a solo album,” the acclaimed musician, best known as a member of Heart, explained in a statement. “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.”
Fans’ initial taste of Wilson’s solo work will come Oct. 23 with the release of her first single, a cover of the Bruce Springsteen song “The Rising.”
