Heart’s Ann Wilson has released a cover of Steve Earle’s “The Revolution Starts Now.” You can check that out below:
“This is my first release since my 2018 solo album release ‘Immortal’. ‘The Revolution Starts Now’ is a powerful, uplifting anthem of unity. It’s an incitement to think higher than polarization and derision. We need that now. I used to love this song in a ‘fun’ way. Nowadays, I take it much more seriously and urgently.
She also added the following during an interview with Rolling Stone:
“Things are just building and have been building for a long time for this sort of fever pitch before the election, and I have never seen a time when people have been so divided. Even with the pandemic, which could have been a real unifier, it seems like there’s the lowest common denominator in human nature at play, where everyone’s just all split up and divided and hating each other. So this song talks about thinking higher.”
