Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson will release her debut solo album in early 2021, and now she’s now shared the lead single, a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “The Rising”.
Written in the aftermath of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks, “The Rising” arrived as an instant classic. Springsteen wrote from the perspective of a firefighter rushing into the crumbling World Trade Center towers.
Now with the coronavirus pandemic, Wilson has brought a fresh take on “The Rising.” In a statement, Wilson
explained her reasons for covering the song: “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.”
