Heart Release New Box Set Rarity

70's Rockers, Heart, are set to release a box set titled, Strange Euphoria on June the 5th.

Curated by Ann and Nancy Wilson, the collection features some of the band's biggest and best-loved songs set alongside catalogue treasures, rarities, demos and live performances. These are compiled onto three CDs and one DVD featuring the band's Dreamboat Annie performance from 1976.

Ann Wilson has spoken about the forthcoming release:

"In all the years we have been making music we have seen trends come and go. We have always felt that to try and chase the latest 'it' sound is pointless, and we have tried to remain true to ourselves as songwriters and musicians. Sometimes we have had amazing success and heard ourselves on the radio... other times not so much, but the music is always playing in our house. In this box we have included many things that until now have never seen the light of day. Also here are our favorite deep tracks and live moments that really speak to who we are on the stage and the connection between us and the people who show up to rock. Enjoy this collection. It has many facets just like we do, but the spirit running through it is all Heart."

Ann Wilson and her younger sister, Nancy, first showed the world that women can rock when their band Heart stormed the charts in the 1970s with hits like Crazy on You, Magic Man, Barracuda, Straight On, Even It Up, Kick It Out and many more. Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments, making them the first women in rock to do so.

Along the way, Heart sold more than 35 million records, had 21 top 40 hits, sold out arenas worldwide, and profoundly influenced the sound and direction of American rock music while inspiring women (and men too!) around the world to rock out in bands of their own.

The band's latest album, Red Velvet Car, was released in 2010 and was their first record in six years. It entered the Billboard charts at number ten, making it the seventh top ten album of the group's career.

Strange Euphoria represents the first time Ann and Nancy have personally curated a collection of their work and is the only time they've opened up their vaults for demos and rarities never heard by the public. The set includes song-by-song annotations, anecdotes, and commentary by the Wilson sisters.
