Heart’s Nancy Wilson releases “Walk Away” music video
HEART‘s Nancy wilson released the official music video for the song “Move away”. The track is taken from his first solo album, “You and me”, released on May 7 via Continue the music.
Nancy recently said Merger from Detroit WRIF radio station about the fear and challenges of going out alone and making music away from the band: “[There was] certainly a lot of challenge for me to screw up my courage enough to be the singer, because I was having a hard time trying not to compare myself to my sister’s voice [HEART singer Ann Wilson], because her voice is so amazing. But she actually gave me good advice once when she said, ‘Don’t worry about being perfect. Don’t insist on perfection. Just tell your story. And that’s kind of how I approached it on this album; I found myself remembering what she told me. As a singer, just tell the story. Don’t sweat the big stuff. Just tell your story. And I really felt comfortable being the singer on this one. “
She continued, “Being a writer was a little intimidating in a way, because I only wrote for HEART mainly or instrumentals for the sheet music for the film mainly, so I had to really come to myself before joining HEART – student herself. Before enrolling, I first took a few courses at university: creative writing, music theory, and literature classes. So I wanted to bring this toolkit into the group when I finally joined the group. So I went back a bit to that same toolbox for this album, because that was not the mission to write for. HEART for change; it was the mission to write for myself. So I thought it was really uplifting and inspiring to do it. And I finally have my own studio to do it where it won’t bother the house at all. Anyway, [the way] it all came together, really, [was] a happy coincidence for me. “
“You and me” was recorded mainly in WilsonCalifornia’s home studio, working remotely with band members and special guests. Most of the songs are originals, but Wilson decided to include a handful of covers from a few of her favorites, including a female perspective from PEARL JAM‘s “The girl”, a moving tour of SIMON & GARFUNKEL‘s “The boxer” with Sammy Hagar, and an ethereal blanket of CRANBERRIES‘ “Dreams”, with Liv’s Warfield (Prince) of Nancythe previous group of ROYAL SUITCASE. The first single from the album was Bruce springsteen‘s “The climb”, which fell last fall.
The other eight tracks are originals, mostly acoustic ballads, but there are also some catchy rockers like “Angel Ballroom Party” which includes a group of superstar including Duff McKagan of GUNS N ‘ROSES and Taylor hawkins of FOO FIGHTERS. The album ends with a song that captures the full spectrum of loss, love and redemption in an instrumental coda. Entitled “4 Edward”, it is Nancyhomage to Eddie Van Halen, whose loss in 2020 still weighs heavily on music.
Title song “You and me”, as with many of the songs on the album, brings together Wilson with a long-time collaborator Sue Ennis, who has co-authored numerous HEARTclassics with Nancy and sister Anne.
With his group HEART, Nancy wilson has recorded 16 albums, sold over 35 million albums worldwide and has four Grammy nominations. She had already released another album with just her name on it, “Live at McCabe Guitar Store”, who captured her playing a set of covers and new songs in 1999. But Nancy considers this to be his first real solo album, a positive creative movement in the midst of a year of surreal loss; life during confinement.
