Heart career box set to come in June

Epic Records/Legacy Recordings have announced the release of Strange Euphoria, the first definitive career-spanning, multi-label boxed set retrospective chronicling American rock band Heart, personally curated by Ann Wilson and Nancy Wilson.
 
An anthology of the biggest hits and best-loved songs, alongside deep catalog treasures, rarities, demos and live performances, Strange Euphoria encompasses three compact discs and one DVD in a deluxe box, will be available everywhere June 5.
 
"In all the years we have been making music we have seen trends come and go,” said Ann Wilson. “We have always felt that to try and chase the latest ‘it’ sound is pointless, and we have tried to remain true to ourselves as songwriters and musicians. Sometimes we have had amazing success and heard ourselves on the radio... other times not so much, but the music is always playing in our house. In this box we have included many things that until now have never seen the light of day. Also here are our favorite deep tracks and live moments that really speak to who we are on the stage and the connection between us and the people who show up to rock. Enjoy this collection.  It has many facets just like we do, but the spirit running through it is all Heart. "
Strange Euphoria represents the first time Ann and Nancy have personally curated a collection of their work and is the only time they've opened up their vaults for demos and rarities never heard by the public. The set includes song-by-song annotations, anecdotes, and commentary by the Wilson sisters.

In 2010, Red Velvet Car, the first new studio album in six years from Heart, entered the Billboard 200 album chart at #10, becoming the seventh Top 10 album of the group's career. The group's first album for Legacy, it marked the return of the group to the Sony family, reaching #1 in sales on Amazon.com.
