Heart news

Heart's 14th studio album Fanatic arrives Oct. 2. It was recorded with Grammy-winning producer Ben Mink (kd lang).

New song titles include "Fanatic," "Dear Old America," "Walkin' Good" (featuring Sarah McLachlan), "Skin and Bones," "Million Miles," "Pennsylvania," "Mashallah," "Rock Deep (Vancouver)," "59 Crunch," and "Corduroy Road."

"What a crazy year we are having," said Heart singer Ann Wilson. "Our box set, Strange Euphoria, and our book, Kicking and Dreaming, each tell the story of our lives so far, personally and musically. Fanatic, tells our story as it is now and brings it all up-to-the-minute. What a thrill to have worked with both [writer] Charles Cross and Ben Mink respectively on these, and of course to touch the musical magic Nancy and I have always shared together."
Earlier this month, Epic/Legacy released Strange Euphoria, the first definitive career-spanning, multi-label boxed set retrospective chronicling Heart. Personally curated by Ann and Nancy Wilson, the anthology has big hits, best-loved songs, deep catalog treasures, rarities, demos and live performances.
Heart will be touring from June 29-November 17. This fall, Ann and Nancy Wilson will also be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (followed by a live concert webcast).

The HarperCollins hardcover edition of Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul and Rock and Roll, the memoir penned by Ann and Nancy Wilson with author Charles R. Cross, arrives Sept. 18.
