Nancy Wilson (Heart) has signed a new deal with Carry On Music for her upcoming solo album. The effort’s first single, a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “The Rising,” will be released on October 23.
Wilson said the following:
“There have been so many times I was asked about when I would ever put out a solo album. 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.”
She also added the following about the upcoming Bruce Springsteen cover:
“I’ve also covered a few favorite songs, and because of these troubled times we’re living in, ‘The Rising’ has been on my mind. 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.”
Tom Lipsky, president of Carry On Music, also commented:
“We are proud and excited that Nancy has chosen Carry On Music to bring her first solo body of work to fans around the world. The album is deep, the lyrics inspire, and the music is beautifully crafted. Fans will love this album!”
