Heart singer Ann Wilson has released a lyric video for her new solo single, “Black Wing.”
“The bird is soaring over the landscape below and bringing news of the crazy world to the watcher who is cut off from civilization,” Wilson tweeted, sharing a link to the “Black Wing” lyric video. “I sometimes felt that way during quarantine!”
The song begins with Wilson singing about the spirits connecting the threads of nature. Her vocals are accompanied by acoustic guitar strums and a keyboard riff.
“Over an outlaw river / Up on the southeastern wind / A spirit is shot like an arrow / Riding all the way home again,” she sings.
In an interview with ABC Audio last year, Wilson described “Black Wing” as a “heavy poetic” song.
“I live on a river, so there’s lots of birdlife and everything,” she explained. “And I see these birds coming so fast across my view. They’re coming from somewhere, and they’re on a mission to somewhere else. I thought, ‘Well, that spirit is carrying a lifeline from the world,’ you know? And so, that got me thinking about writing a song … about carrying messages from the world’s insanity out to this pure place.”
Wilson previously released a couple of singles, “Tender Heart” and “The Hammer,” after coming out with a cover of Steve Earle‘s 2004 track “The Revolution Starts Now.”
