Ann Wilson is gearing up for the release of her new album, Fierce Bliss, and has now debuted the second single from the sessions, Missionary Man.

The track is one of two from the album to feature Kenny Wayne Shepherd on lead guitar. The resulting collaboration is a fuzzy, '70s rock stomper complete with a full choir (The Rev Nathan Young Singers) and a vocal melody that recalls one of Wilson’s finest Heart hits, Barracuda.
