Everyone knows more Foreigner than they think… classics such as “Cold As Ice”, “Waiting for a Girl Like You” and
the number 1 hit “I Want to Know What Love Is” have cemented the band’s status one of the most popular rock acts
ever. Foreigner‘s mix of blustery blues and impeccably crafted pop continues to captivate generation after generation of music fans.
And after racking up 70 million album sales worldwide, they now have a brand new studio album “Can’t Slow Down” - their first for 15 years!
“Can’t Slow Down” is released 26th February on Edel’s international Rock and Pop label, earMUSIC. The album features 13 brand new songs and is produced by Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith / Buckcherry) and celebrated Grammy Award winning producer Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse).
This is an album that grabs you from the outset, with straight Rock opener “Can‘t Slow Down“, which stands strong beside melodic mid-tempo songs such as “Angel Tonight“ and “Too Late“ and beautiful ballads “When It Comes To Love” (one of the strongest tracks on the album and surefire hit) to the last chord of the Ronson production “Fool For You Anyway”.
Founder member Mick Jones - lead guitars and vocals - is joined by Kelly Hansen on lead vocal (ex Hurricane);
Tom Gimbel (long term touring with Aerosmith) on guitar, saxophone, flute and backing vocals; Michael Bluestein (Stevie Nicks, Enrique Iglesias and Anastacia) on keyboards; Jeff Pilson (ex Dokken, Dio and MSG) on bass; and
Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Slash‘s Snakepit, Glenn Hughes, Billy Idol) on drums.
Of the album and the line up, Mick Jones (the band’s founder and legendary songwriter/guitarist) says:
“Our music has touched a lot of people worldwide. Unwittingly, we've weaved into the fabric of people's lives and this new line-up is working extremely hard to live up to the high bar that was set years ago. This is the most dynamic
line-up that we’ve had since the early days.”
Available on CD, “Can’t Slow Down” is also available as part of a 2CD/1DVD set (Disc 1: Can’t Slow Down Studio
Album, Disc 2: Foreigner Live, Disc 3: DVD featuring live footage, backstage footage and interviews) in 5.1 sound,
on a Vinyl and as a Collectors Edition which features signed 7” vinyl & CD.
