Pat Benatar to Release Acoustic Record

Published: 2007-08-02
American rocker Pat Benatar will be releasing an acoustic record to put a whole new spin on her classic hits.

Benatar and her co-writer husband Neil Giraldo are currently on tour until September, after which they plan on working on the acoustic versions of her songs, such as "Love is a Battlefield" and "Every Time I Fall Back". The disc will be released via Benatar's own label, Bel Chiasso, and plans not only to play her tracks stripped down to their original states but with a whole new set of arrangements. While her famous tunes will still be recognizable to the fans who made her a success, Benatar is excited to re-examine the past and show music lovers what new things she and her husband can come up with.

Besides the tour, Benatar and Giraldo have been working on an autobiography that the singer tells "will focus less on their personal lives and more on what the world was like when women were emerging on the rock scene and all the sexism and everything."
