In the Heart of the Young is the second album by American rock band Winger. It was released by Atlantic Records in 1990.

Musically, In the Heart of the Young followed closely in the footsteps of the band's debut album. Beau Hill produced the album. There are, however, also some notable changes from the debut.

The album was certified platinum and produced such hits as "Can't Get Enuff", "Easy Come Easy Go" and "Miles Away", the latter of which made the Top 20 at Billboard's single chart. According to Kip Winger, "Can't Get Enuff" and "Easy Come Easy Go" were late additions to the track listing, written because it was felt there were not enough rock songs on the album.[3] The album itself peaked at #15 at the album chart.

Winger followed the release of the album with a 13-month world tour, playing with Kiss, Scorpions, ZZ Top, Extreme and Slaughter.

A collection of music videos with the same title was released the following year in two separate VHS volumes.

Singles[edit]

  • "Can't Get Enuff" / "In the Day We'll Never See"
  • "Miles Away / "Rainbow in the Rose"
  • "Easy Come Easy Go" / "Battle Stations"

At least two more songs were recorded during the In the Heart of the Young sessions, but "All I Ever Wanted" and "Never" did not make it to the final album in America, because producer Beau Hill found them too heavy for the Winger sound. Both were originally released as B-sides. "All I Ever Wanted" was later released as a bonus track to the Japanese pressings of the album, while "Never" was later released on Demo Anthology.

In 1991, In the Heart of the Young, Vol. 2 was released on VHS. It included promos for the videos of the songs "Silent Night", "Easy Come Easy Go" and "You Are the Saint, I Am the Sinner", along with performance footage and band interviews. "Silent Night" was never recorded by the band for an album, and this VHS is the only official released version of the song.
