Foreigner Announce U.K. Release of New Live Album ‘The Best of Foreigner 4 & More’
The current Foreigner lineup has added its own live spin to a batch of the band's classic tracks for a new album they're calling 'The Best of Foreigner 4 & More.'
Details of the project are available at the album's PledgeMusic page, which lists a Dec. 5 release date in the U.K. only and promises "vinyl, limited edition posters and remake T-shirts from their 1981-1982 tour." Bassist Jeff Pilson shared his excitement for the album, saying, "Great songs, great performances and great production are timeless -- and '4' has all three in spades. Bringing the album to life on stage made us very happy. We’re thrilled to give people a chance to really reflect on what a great and classic album '4' truly is."
The album will not be available in the U.S.due to licensing restrictions.
Released in the summer of 1981, Foreigner's '4' topped the charts and selling more than seven million copies in the U.S. while spinning off a slew of pop and rock radio hits that included 'Juke Box Hero,' 'Urgent' and 'Waiting for a Girl Like You' -- all of which are present and accounted for on 'The Best of Foreigner 4 & More.' "It's great to be in a group with people who really get it, and understand how fortunate we are to be playing and performing such great material," enthused vocalist Kelly Hansen, while band founder Mick Jones added, "Our music has touched a lot of people worldwide -- unwittingly, we've weaved our music into the fabric of people's lives."
