Three Hearts is the second solo album by rock musician and former Fleetwood Mac guitarist Bob Welch.

Just like Welch's previous effort French Kiss, Three Hearts was a commercial success. The album reached number 20 on the US charts in 1979 and went gold.[2] It spawned a hit single, "Precious Love", which peaked at number 19, making it Welch's last top 20 hit. "Church" was also a small hit, and peaked at number 73.[3] Don't Wait Too Long" is a reworking of "Good Things (Come to Those who Wait)", a Welch composition that had been left off the Fleetwood Mac album Mystery to Me.

The album was reissued by Culture Factory in 2013 in a miniature replica LP sleeve, with 3 bonus cuts including the French version of "Precious Love". However, to this day, the 12-inch extended mix of "Precious Love" has never been released on CD.
