ANN WILSON RETURNS TO ROCK ROOTS WITH NEW SONG, "THE HAMMER"


Legendary rock singer and songwriter Ann Wilson continues her streak of electric new singles with today’s premiere of “The Hammer,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services.


“The Hammer” follows Wilson’s latest single, “Tender Heart,” and its video featuring American Olympic medalist Gracie Gold, as well as “The Revolution Starts Now,” her first single release in two years. The song was originally written and recorded by Steve Earle and was backed by her version of Alice In Chains’ “Rooster,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services. The official videos are streaming now via Wilson’s official YouTube Channel.

Ann Wilson is a true icon, known far and wide as lead singer and songwriter of the groundbreaking rock band Heart. Led by Wilson’s extraordinary vocal power, Heart has thrilled audiences for more than four decades, earning sales of more than 35 million and well-deserved induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013. Wilson’s second solo album, 2018’s IMMORTAL, saw her putting her unique stamp on songs made famous by a number of hugely influential artists, including David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Tom Petty, Amy Winehouse, and more. Produced by longtime Heart collaborator Mike Flicker, the album earned widespread critical acclaim, with Associated Press declaring it “an exciting, eye-opening look at largely obscure songs by big-name artists” and Goldmine praising Wilson for “her mighty vocal firepower and a far ranging creative spirit.”
