Tina Turner - When The Heartache Is Over - Single

When The Heartache Is Over was the first single from the album Twenty Four Seven in 1999, produced by Brian Rawling and Mark Taylor from the Metro team, which also produced Chers #1 single „Believe“. The live tracks from the single were recorded in Amsterdam at the Wildest Dreams Tour in 1996. „When The Heartache Is Over“ was a massive airplay hit and charted in the top ten in several European countries. In America, it was #3 on the Billboard dance charts. It’s also Tina’s most remixed song ever with regular remixes and a lot of DJ-Mixes. For promotion, Tina performed it at several tv shows live and at her „Twenty Four Seven Tour“ in 2000. The music video is available on the home video Celebrate! and was also released in remixed versions.

The mighty Tina Turner returns with a song that is so scintillating, so accessible to today’s pop leanings, and so, well, that it can’t help but launch the third coming of this timeless superstar. Produced by Brian Rawling and Mark Taylor, the team that catapulted Cher back to fame via „Believe" (and more recently, commandeered Enrique Iglesias’ „Bailamos" and new "Rhythm Divine"), this number has similar energy, with a bright-eyed dance beat and production so tight and joyful that listeners will be pulled in by the first chorus and singing along by the last. The feat’s already been accomplished across Europe, where this song was an instantaneous smash. Lyrically, Turner sings of the joy of liberation from a love gone bad — once the heartache has passed. It’s a positive message that will bring in a new generation of pop listeners, while allowing adults to crack a smile and tap a toe to the worldwide return of one of contemporary music’s greatest achievers and most-cherished performers. From the forthcoming "Twenty Four Seven."
