When The Heartache Is Over is the first single from the album Twenty Four Seven, produced by Brian Rawling and Mark Taylor from the Metro team, which also produced Chers #1 single „Believe“. The song is Tina’s most remixed song ever with regular remixes from 7th Disctrict and Hex Hector and a lot of DJ mixes. Tina promoted it amongst others at the German tv show Wetten Dass..? and the Superbowl pre-game show in America and performed it live at her Twenty Four Seven Tour. A live version is available on the One Last Time home video from 2000.

The music video was directed by Paul Boyd, produced by Danyi Deats and choreographed by Tina Landon. It features Tina dancing in front of a huge illuminated 'T I N A’ sign and video wall, together with some other dancers around her. The clip, also available in remixed versions, was released as a bonus on the Celebrate! home video. 

Released in October 1999 from Parlophone Records in Europe and in February 2000 from Virgin Records in America on 12“ vinyl, cassette, 5“ CD and digital, When The Heartache Is Over reached #10 in England, #16 in Europe, #23 in Germany and #3 (Club Play) in America. It was also a #2 airplay hit in Europe.

Billboard Magazine - December 04, 1999: 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."
