Heart is back, but not with new music. Ann and Nancy Wilson are revisiting their past with three discs of original material that includes rarities, demo versions, live takes and even pre-Heart tracks.

On the 56-song box set, titled Strange Euphoria, the Wilson sisters include hits like “These Dreams” and “Alone,” but it’s not exactly a greatest hits compilation (of which several already exist). Rather, Heart digs deep into their musical past for tracks that have yet to see the light of day and for some that were created before the release of their 1976 debut album, Dreamboat Annie.

As a bonus, the band includes a disc of five Led Zeppelin covers, which are only available to fans who purchase the box set on Amazon.com. Zeppelin bassist, John Paul Jones, even lends a hand on a live version of “Never” included in the release.

Strange Euphoria, which will be released June 5, also includes a DVD of a rare Dreamboat Annie TV performance.
