Steve Hackett has re-recorded the GTR classic ‘When the Heart Rules the Mind”
with Steve Rothery playing some additional guitars. The track is available from all digital services.
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.
