Amplified Heart is the eighth studio album by Everything but the Girl.

It was recorded and mixed in London during winter 1993/94. Photography was by Corinne Day.

Primarily an acoustic-driven set,[2] Amplified Heart brought Everything but the Girl to mainstream audiences via the dance-floor remix of "Missing". Ultimately peaking at #2 on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart in early 1996, "Missing" spent more than a year gaining airplay and exposing Everything but the Girl to USA and worldwide audiences. This album was rereleased in 2012 by Edsel Records as a 2-disc Deluxe Set.
