Ann Wilson, the powerhouse vocalist of classic rock legends Heart, has returned with a resonant new single titled “Tender Heart.”

Premiered on Friday, the song is one of intense personal emotions for Wilson, as she said in a statement:

“‘Tender Heart’ came out of a personal struggle, but quickly evolved into a greater, more universal meaning. We as the human race are coming to realize realities we never dreamed we’d have to face – environmentally, culturally, financially, and health-wise. Humanity is coming to terms with uncomfortable, heartbreaking, terrifying truths. This song is for the soul whose heart is blindsided by reality, but is still soft and innocent. I hope people will identify with this song and feel they are not alone.”

“Tender Heart” is the first bit of new music from Ann Wilson since last October, when she premiered a timely cover of Steve Earle’s “The Revolution Starts Now!”:

In addition to these new recordings, Wilson also participated in a special tribute honoring Alice in Chains in early December. The grunge/metal band received an award from the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle, and Wilson (and her band) contributed an excellent cover of the classic ’90s hit “Rooster”:

This activity from Ann also comes during a busy stretch for her sister and band mate in Heart, Nancy Wilson, who unveiled a new Epiphone guitar this week ahead of a solo album due in the spring.
