    Fierce Bliss –  Release 29th April,2022

    Via – Silver Lining Records

    A rock ‘n’ roll return brings both the old and the new as Ann Wilson arrives with a brand new solo album. It cannot be questioned that Ann Wilson and the incredible band Heart have taken pride of place alongside other great’s of rock ‘n’ roll. Whether she’s delighting the scene with a beautiful cover track, or creating her own unique and wonderful works; Wilson is a true delight to hear and enjoy, whether you’re stood in the festival fields or just listening at home. With no less than fourteen singles released from 2015 to 2022, and one of her two previous albums being set at a live concert in 1993, it is obvious Wilson is no stranger to success. Both 1993 and 2018 works are a wonderful combination of unique pieces and cover tracks, all of which are filled with a classic combination of rock ‘n’ roll guitar and drums alongside powerful vibrant vocals that are filled with energy and passion.

    It is clear to see time doesn’t age talent, as Wilson returns once again with her third album so rightly titled Fierce Bliss. This album brings everything its title states and more, as Wilson once again provides an incredible track that mixes her own unique songs in with inspired covers that will please fans of both the band and the original tracks.

    The album contains a near even mix, with six of the ten tracks being original works (one being a single of Wilson’s from 2016 remastered) the remaining four being covers. The original works are all as incredible as the last, with each one containing classic Wilson rhythm mix up of electric guitars wild drum and bass. Accompanying these are the always present strong vocals and exciting lyrics, all combining into a selection of great new tracks that will give fans all of the nostalgic glory while still providing something new and enjoyable. Two tracks have already been released as singles, ‘A Moment In Heaven‘ and ‘Greed‘ on the 29th March 2022, alongside a cover version of ‘Missionary Man.’ This cover track, along with the remaining three, are nothing short of amazing to hear. ‘Love Of My Life‘ and ‘Missionary Man‘ both provide a faithful yet beautiful cover to their original songs, ‘Missionary Man‘ having all energy and drive of The Eurythmics, Annie Lennox, and Dave Steward; while ‘Love Of My life‘ replicates the mournful, but melodic original of Queen. The third and fourth covers, on the other hand, attempt to do something a little different; instead provide a faster and more energetic version of Opeth’s ‘Bridge of Sighs‘ as well as a much more rock ‘n’ roll inspired Jeff Buckley’s ‘Forget Her.

    Whether you’re already a fan, looking for a new taste of rock ‘n’ roll, or just really like to hear a good cover of a song you know and adore, Ann Wilson’s ‘Fierce Bliss’ is the album for you.

    It’s the rock ‘n’ roll Album that’s not scared to bring a new lease of life into the greats and the classics. Honouring the past and embracing the future, this artist is one that really puts her Heart into Rock ‘n’ Roll.
