Heart – Heartless

ADVERTISEMENTS

Heart is an American rock band that first found success in Canada and later in the United States and worldwide. Over the group’s four-decade history it has had three primary lineups, with the constant center of the group since 1974 being sisters Ann Wilson (lead singer) and Nancy Wilson (guitarist). Heart rose to fame in the mid-1970s with music influenced by hard rock and heavy metal as well as folk music.

Their popularity declined in the early 1980s, but the band enjoyed a comeback starting in 1985 and experienced even greater success with album oriented rock (AOR) hits and hard rock ballads into the 1990s. With Jupiter’s Darling (2004), Red Velvet Car (2010), and Fanatic (2012), Heart made a return to its hard rock and acoustic folk roots. To date, Heart has sold over 35 million records worldwide, including over 22.5 million in album sales in the U. The group was ranked number 57 on VH1’s “100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock”.

In 1977 Mushroom ran a full-page advertisement in Rolling Stone magazine showing the bare-shouldered Wilson sisters (as on the “Dreamboat Annie” album cover) with the suggestive caption, “It was only our first time!”. Mushroom released the partly completed Magazine in early 1977, just before Portrait released Little Queen. Both sides attempted to prevent the other from releasing. It peaked at number 17 in the US, generating the single “Heartless”, which reached number 24 in the chart, and eventually achieved platinum status.

“Heartless” is a song written and recorded by the rock band Heart in 1976 for their album Magazine. Issues with the band’s previous record label Mushroom caused a delay in the album’s release and “Heartless” was released as a single two years later, after the re-issue of their first single “Crazy on You”. “Heartless” & “Without You” were the only singles released from Magazine, with “Heartless” peaking at number twenty-four on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Only five months passed before Heart released their next album, Dog and Butterfly.
