Grammy-award winning singer Amy Grant announced that she will be releasing a special 30th-anniversary version of her smash-hit album, Heart In Motion. She surprised her fans with the news on her social media.
“We had to celebrate in a big way! “Heart In Motion: 30th Anniversary Edition” will be released July 9th featuring a bonus disc full of new mixes and never before heard songs. Physical pre-order is available now with digital pre-order launching 6/18.”
“Heart In Motion,” originally released on March 5, 1991, sold over 5 million copies and garnered five Billboard Top 10 singles. Classic songs from the album are “Baby Baby,” “Every Heartbeat,” “That’s What Love Is For,” “I Will Remember You,” and “Good For Me.”
Grant’s career in music started over 40 years ago in gospel. She then merged into pop music, philanthropy, and television. The “That’s What Love Is For” singer has earned numerous awards including six Grammys and 26 Dove Awards (including four Artist of the Year Awards). She has also been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as well as the Music City Walk of Fame.
In the coming weeks, special pre-orders and fan packages will be offered to those interested in purchasing the album. The singer’s website will be live with an exclusive “Fan Bundle” that includes the double-disc, an exclusive bonus single disc with commentary, a limited-edition photo book, T-shirt, and a 30-year “Heart In Motion” keychain. A version of the album will also be available at Walmart with two extra tracks. Digital pre-orders will begin June 18 at all DSPs and include the track “Don’t Ever Want To Lose It (Wind in the Fire).”
Grant spoke about nostalgia she felt in putting together this special 30th-anniversary album.
“How could 30 years have flown by so quickly,” she asked. “Doing this commemorative project has been so much fun – going through old photographs, reconnecting with so many people who were part of the original project, sharing memories, and rediscovering the music that made it and the music that didn’t. I hope people enjoy listening to what we have put together.”
