Heart‘s Nancy Wilson has dropped a cover of Bruce Springsteen‘s “The Rising” from her debut solo LP, tentatively called The Lab.
“Under the conditions we’re all living in now, this song is something that might help people,” Wilson told Rolling Stone. “It’s a spiritual song and a call to a greater good, a human condition that is bigger than we are.”
She added, “As humans are picked off by this crazy invisible enemy [of Covid-19], we are trying to rise up above it and take some kind of comfort in our own spirituality.”
“The Rising,” the title track to Springsteen’s 2002 album, is one of three covers that will feature on The Lab, which will drop in March 2021.
Covers of Simon & Garfunkel‘s “The Boxer” and Pearl Jam‘s “Daughter” will also be included along with seven originals on the album.
