Heart’s Ann Wilson has released new music for the first time in two years with the topical single “The Revolution Starts Now.”
The song was originally recorded back in 2004 by Steve Earle,
Ann calls the song "a powerful, uplifting anthem of unity. It’s an incitement to think higher than polarization and derision. We need that now. I used to love this song in a ‘fun’ way. Nowadays, I take it much more seriously and urgently."
She explained in a Rolling Stone interview, "Things are just building and have been building for a long time for this sort of fever pitch before the election, and I have never seen a time when people have been so divided... Even with the pandemic, which could have been a real unifier, it seems like there’s the lowest common denominator in human nature at play, where everyone’s just all split up and divided and hating each other. So this song talks about thinking higher."
