Heart, the sister duo who brought you "Break" and "Barracuda," are back with Beautiful Broken, out July 8th. The album includes a handful of songs that the band decided to re-record in a new way, including new versions of 1980's "Down on Me" and "Sweet Darlin'" and 1982's "City's Burning," as well as three new originals. For the "neo-punk" version of title track "Beautiful Broken," Metallica’s James Hetfield makes a rare guest appearance. Here, Ann Wilson chooses her favorite songs by other artists that speak to her.
"These are songs about talking directly to someone's spirit," says the Heart singer, who's touring this summer with Cheap Trick and Joan Jett. "They're all ballads."
