Heart Release Live 'Beautiful Broken' Video: Heart News


On Monday Heart Release Live 'Beautiful Broken' Video was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Heart have released a live video of them performing Beautiful Broken. It's the title track of their 16th album, which was released last month via Concord Bicycle Music. The studio version features a guest appearance from Metallica's James Hetfield.

Speaking about the track with Rolling Stone, Heart singer Ann Wilson said: "I wrote the words in 2012 or 2013. And the vision I had for it was of a sort of fabulous disaster chick - kind of in the form of someone like Courtney Love.

"She's complicated, she's gorgeous, she's got it all wired tight, but she has a design flaw upstairs that makes her unable to live in the world normally. It's a character study, really. And getting James Hetfield to sing on it, that was an idea that Nancy had."

Guitarist Nancy Wilson added: "James is a really old friend of my husband's. We were listening to the bonus-track version of Beautiful Broken that came from the Fanatic album, and it had such a great, raucous spirit. It had that aggression and that rock thing and so he said, 'Well, why don't we see if James might want to give it a listen and try to do some stuff on there?'

"James came back and said that he loved it. So we sent him the new track that we had just recorded. He took it to his studio and he did amazing work. He added a new part, some new lyrics, all the background vocals. I think he brought the song more into focus than it had been.

"It was great to see it transform like that into something sort of new, which is what we did with a lot of the songs on this album." Watch the video - here.
