Brigade is the tenth studio album, released by the popular hard-rock band Heart. Released in 1990 after a three-year gap between albums, the album featured the #2 Billboard Hot 100 hit "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You" and reached number three on the U.S. Billboard 200. Two other album cuts reached the Top 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 ("I Didn't Want to Need You", "Stranded"), and two others peaked near the top of Billboard's Mainstream Rock Chart ("Wild Child, "Tall Dark Handsome Stranger").

The album was followed by a successful world tour. Like its predecessor Bad Animals, the album is notable for a decline in writing contributions from lead members Ann and Nancy Wilson, but would be the last of Heart's albums to prominently feature outside writers.
