Heart’s Ann Wilson On Her New Album “Fierce Bliss,” Vince Gill, Future Plans, Creativity & More

Widely-regarded as having one of the greatest voices in the history of rock, Ann Wilson has been both critically-acclaimed and commercially-successful as lead singer and songwriter of the band Heart. Heart has thrilled audiences for over 4 decades, earning sales of more than 35 million and a well-deserved induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 2013. She made her solo debut with 2007’s Hope & Glory, following that album up over a decade later by way of 2018’s Immortal. 2021 found a very productive Wilson releasing 4 pre-Heart era recordings from 1969 made with her original touring band The Daybreaks, as followed up with a 5-song EP titled Sawheat 8 and a return to the road.

Fierce Bliss is the latest full-length release from Ann Wilson, as due out via Silver Lining Music on April 29, 2022. The latest single released from Fierce Bliss is Wilson’s take on Queen’s “Love of My Life,” which features vocals from Vince Gill; Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Warren Haynes also make appearances on Fierce Bliss. The album’s artwork was helmed by celebrated fantasy artist Roger Dean, while the full-length itself is currently available to pre-order now within the CD Casebound Book (deluxe package), Vinyl and Digital formats. Touring in support of Fierce Bliss is slated to kick off on May 4, 2022 at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall, ultimately bringing Wilson north, south and east before reaching the Puyallip, Washington area’s Washington State Fair on September 2, 2022.

On April 6, 2022, I had the pleasure of speaking with Ann Wilson again via Zoom, as embedded below. More on Ann Wilson, upcoming tour dates included, can be found by clicking here, here and here.
