Brigade is the tenth studio album by the American rock band Heart. Released in 1990 after a three-year gap between albums, the album featured the No. 2 Billboard Hot 100 hit "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You"[5] and reached No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart.[6] Two other album cuts reached the Top 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart ("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").[5]

The album was followed by a successful world tour. Like its 1987 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.
