Heart singer Ann Wilson releases new single The Hammer

Heart singer Ann Wilson has released a lyric video for her new single, “The Hammer.”

"The Hammer talks about that moment when the rubber meets the road, when all dreams, fantasies, and excuses fall by the wayside,” says Wilson. “The moment of truth. The edge of reality."

The tune comes on the heels of “Tender Heart”, as the latest single issued by the rocker, with both songs following her recent cover of Steve Earle’s 2004 track, “The Revolution Starts Now”, last fall.

Wilson’s most recent solo studio record is 2018’s “Immortal”; the project – which debuted and peaked at No. 48 on the US Billboard 200 – saw her deliver a diverse set of tunes that pay homage to some of her favorite songs and artists, all of whom have passed away in recent years – including tracks by David Bowie, Tom Petty, Chris Cornell, The Eagles and more.

Recorded with original Heart producer Mike Flicker, the set featured guest appearances by Warren Haynes and Ben Mink.
