Heart’s forthcoming new album of re-imagined versions of older material Beautiful Broken is due out July 8th. The album features Metallica’s James Hetfield backing up Ann Wilson on the song ‘Fanatic’. The teaser for the album is available at this link or below.
Heart’s Nancy Wilcson comments on the new album:
“There is really a seventies feel to this record both in the sound, and the way we got to the emotional core of each song. We picked songs that we always wanted to re-do, plus we’ve added three new tracks. On both new and old, we have the band playing together the way we used to. This is classic HEART.”
