Exclusive: Hear Two New Christmas Songs by Heart
The past few years have brought Heart fans an outpouring of goodies, including a pair of hit albums, a box set, a memoir and induction into the Rock Hall of Fame. And it looks like Ann and Nancy Wilson are still in the giving spirit.
The sisters have announced that Heart will put out a new Christmas single this month: a double A-sided release, due Nov. 12, that finds the Wilsons harmonizing with a pair of famous friends. Aaron Neville duets with Ann on ‘Please Come Home for Christmas,’ while Nancy shares the mic with Richard Marx for ‘All Through the Night.’ Both songs were produced by Miami Sound Machine mastermind Emilio Estefan.
For Ann, the opportunity to record with Neville represented the culmination of a lifelong dream. “I have loved Aaron Neville’s amazing, soulful voice since I was a teenager, and it is a great blessing to get this opportunity to sing a duet with him,” she said in a statement. “He truly has a gift, and is a sweet person. It shows on this track.”
And best of all, Ultimate Classic Rock readers don’t even have to wait until next week to hear the new music. Thanks to Legacy Recordings, you can listen to both songs below. So check them out right now. And don’t forget to include the band on your list of thank-you cards this year.
