Heart vocalist Ann Wilson has released a cover of Steve Earle‘s “The Revolution Starts Now.”
This is the legendary singer’s first release since her 2018 solo album, 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,” Wilson said in a press statement.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Wilson said, “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,” she added.
American street artist and activist Shepard Fairly reportedly did the artwork for “The Revolution Starts Now” cover version.
“The Revolution Starts Now” originally appeared on Earle’s 2004 album of the same name.
