Ann Wilson of Heart has been busy lately — and on Monday, the revered singer/songwriter debuted a new solo single titled “Black Wing.”

Another showcase of her dynamic vocal range, “Black Wing” was billed by Wilson as follows in a message to fans:

“Over an outlaw river….up on the southeastern wind….”  The bird is a free spirit apart from what goes on below: “ On the breath of your liberation…and the perfume of wild ginger bloom. “The bird is soaring over the landscape below and bringing news of the crazy world to the watcher who is cut off from civilization. I sometimes felt that way during Quarantine!”

More from Ann:

“Fantastic experience recording this one. It reminds me of something I would have written in 1977( Dream of the Archer ) or in 2010 ( Safronia’s Mark ). It’s got a gypsy, folk/rock feel to it superimposed over a tribal groove.

“The band was tight with everything I imagined. There is also a long version of ‘Black Wing’ that lets their beautiful, soaring, tribal groove sail on for another few minutes. Someday we will drop that one too for those with relaxed imaginations!”

“Black Wing” is in stark contrast to “The Hammer,” the previous single shared by Ann Wilson in late February. That one was more of a straight-ahead rocker:

And “Tender Heart,” which premiered in early February with a video featuring Olympic ice skater Gracie Gold (a 2014 Olympic team event bronze medalist, among other career milestones) and cinematography from Nina Petrenko.
