Listen to Foreigner’s New Live Version of ‘Urgent’ – Exclusive Premiere
With the U.S. release of the band’s new live LP just days away, Foreigner are ready to give fans another taste of what to expect from the album.
Ultimate Classic Rock is happy to present the exclusive premiere of ‘Urgent,’ from ‘The Best of Foreigner 4 & More.’ Already available in the U.K. and arriving in the States on Dec. 16, the new collection offers freshly recorded live renditions of songs from 1981’s ‘Foreigner 4′ — many culled from shows that took place just a few weeks ago — in addition to onstage performances of other hits from the group’s multi-platinum catalog.
Like Foreigner’s most recent studio set, 2009’s ‘Can’t Slow Down,’ ‘The Best of Foreigner 4 & More’ finds founding member Mick Jones playing alongside new singer Kelly Hansen, who replaced original vocalist Lou Gramm in 2005. For Hansen, the release represents an opportunity for him to put his stamp on some classic cuts — and offer live recordings of some songs for the first time. “The idea for this recording came as a way to celebrate the original album,” he enthused in a press release. “There are some tracks that were never previously performed live in this format, and it’s wonderful 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.”
‘The Best of Foreigner 4 & More’ is available for pre-order now. Listen to ‘Urgent’ above, and check out the complete track listing below.
