HEART Releases ‘Beautiful Broken’ this Friday July 8

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legends HEART will release BEAUTIFUL BROKEN–their first new album in four years and first for Concord Records–this Friday, July 8. Billboard.com yesterday (July 6)debuted the full album with an exclusive stream.

BEAUTIFUL BROKENHEART‘s sixteenth album in a career with over 35 million albums sold–finds Ann and Nancy Wilson exploring new songs, but taking some of their favorite “cherry picks” from their catalog and rerecording and rethinking them. The title track and first single–the hard-hitting “Beautiful Broken”–features a dynamic guest vocal contribution by Metallica‘s James Hetfield with Ann Wilson.

BEAUTIFUL BROKEN was co-produced by Nancy Wilson with Heart‘s bassist Dan Rothchild. Rothchild had previously produced Better Than Ezra’s platinum-selling Deluxe, but he also comes from rock royalty: his father was legendary Doors producer Paul Rothchild. BEAUTIFUL BROKEN was recorded at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, the same studio the Doors cut their best work.

Starting next week–Thursday, July 14–HEART will launch their summer headlining run with Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and Cheap Trick (which kicks off Thursday, July 14), to be followed by HEART solo shows in October.
