The Ronettes icon Ronnie Spector's first album of new material since 2006 is a tribute album to the 1960s British Invasion. The eleven tracks of ENGLISH HEART comprise a collection of Ronnie’s hand picked favorites including songs recorded by the Kinks (Tired of Waiting), the Animals (Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood), the Beatles (I’ll Follow the Sun), and Gerry & the Pacemakers (Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Crying).
