Coming on November 12th will be the digital download of two new Christmas songs by Heart. "Please Come Home for Christmas" is a duet between Ann Wilson and Aaron Neville and "All Through The Night" is a new take on the Welsh folk carol sung by Nancy Wilson, featuring backing vocals by Richard Marx. Both tracks were produced by 19-time Grammy Award winning musician and producer Emilio Estefan, the husband of singer, Gloria Estafan.
Ann Wilson told us that she's proud that Heart still tries to grow both in the studio as well as on stage: "Well, y'know, we're not bound by the Heart tradition. Heart is now a brand name that we worked really hard on, and now we're not selling that brand of soap. It's funny how you can get into a prison of your own making with a big-name band like that, and all of a sudden, you look around yourself and you go, 'Jesus, I don't want to do this. That's not really where we're at.'"
Nancy Wilson told us that throughout its career, Heart has always embraced change and never been afraid of venturing off the beaten path artistically: "They tell you not to reinvent yourself, because your fans have an identity that they know, that is familiar to them, that they don't want to change. But in our case, we've been able to change a lot, but we've had to fight to be able to change a lot."
