BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985
“When A Heart Beats” is a song by the English singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Nik Kershaw. It was released as the lead single from his third solo studio album, Radio Musicola, being Kershaw’s eighth single. The single features the track, “Wild Horses” as the B-side, which was originally released on Kershaw’s previous album “The Riddle”.
Though hitting #27 in the UK Singles Chart towards the end of 1985, “When a Heart Beats” marked the beginning of a downturn of Kershaw’s fortunes on the singles charts, as it was the first time that a lead single from a Kershaw album failed to hit the Top 20 in the US/UK.
