Listen: Steve Hackett Releases an Updated Version of GTR's "When the Heart Rules the Mind"

This weekend sees the beginning of Steve Hackett’s North American tour, beginning with Cruise To The Edge on the February 3rd.

To celebrate, Steve has rerecorded GTR’s US hit single ‘When The Heart Rules The Mind’, which you can hear below.

“I always loved the track ‘When the Heart Rules the Mind’. I think it is the strongest thing Steve Howe and I wrote together and I always wanted to do a version where I would sing it myself with the use of today's production techniques. I'm also very pleased to have my friend Steve Rothery on board doing additional guitar. I'm looking forward to taking my band on tour. It'll be great to play both North and South America again celebrating Genesis, solo and GTR!” - Steve Hackett

‘When The Heart Rules The Mind’ will be available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon & all other digital services from tomorrow, February 2nd.
