Guitarist Nancy Wilson revealed the news during an interview on The Eighties Experience radio show with JJ Buchanan on FM 88.5 KSBR in Southern California on Sunday, February 19.
It looks like 2012 will be a big year for the band. A box set and biography are in the works, and the band is booking live dates well into the year. See their tour dates at the band’s official website. The box set is expected to contain classic songs as well as tracks that weren’t represented on the band’s major label albums.
Heart’s most recent album was Red Velvet Car, which was released in August 2010. Prior to that album’s release, they had only released one album, 2004’s Jupiters Darling, since 1993’s Desire Walks On.
