With Heart's Fanatic, a new studio album, and Kicking and Dreaming, an insiders' memoir, out now, 2012 is shaping up as a banner year for the iconic American band.

Hits like "Crazy on You," "Magic Man," and "Barracuda" in the mid-1970s running through 2010's Red Velvet Car have created an enduring catalogue of bona fide stadium rock classics and power ballads while establishing a lasting template for women in rock.

Fanatic is Heart's 14th studio album.

The group's second full-length studio album for Legacy, Fanatic premieres 10 new essential performances from sisters Ann Wilson and Nancy Wilson on songs including "Fanatic," "Dear Old America," "Walkin' Good" (featuring Sarah McLachlan), "Skin and Bones," "Million Miles," "Pennsylvania," "Mashallah," "Rock Deep (Vancouver)," "59 Crunch," and "Corduroy Road."
