Ann Wilson Taps "Immigrant Song" As First Single On Her Debut Solo Effort 'Hope & Glory"
"My love of Led Zeppelin is very much a matter of public record," says legendary vocalist Ann Wilson, so it's no surprise that she pays homage to the classic rock band on her first single from her solo debut 'Hope Glory' (Sept. 11th, ZOË/Rounder Records). Wilson, one of the few artists that can match the arresting talents of Robert Plant, puts a twist on the hard-hitting anthem "Immigrant Song". Wilson explains, "(Producer) Ben Mink said, 'Why don't we just start you out like Yma Sumac and take the song way, way North African?' Our version starts a little like a little dot on the horizon, but by the time it's done you've been overrun by all the barbarians."Listen to "Immigrant Song" here.
