Half of Heart’s formidable Wilson sisters is planning to release a solo debut next year.

Nancy Wilson has expressed her interest in a solo career after decades of recording and performing with her sister Ann in the band Heart. “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 said.

She plays the guitar and sings on the new album, which is set to be released with her own rendition of Bruce Springsteen’s 2002 song, “The Rising”, on October 23. She added: “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.”

Details about the record will be released soon.
