The Best of Foreigner 4 & More
Iconic Rock Legends Foreigner release “The Best of Foreigner 4 & More” on Frontiers Music srl, available December 5th
New high-definition live recording from the band’s most successful album of all time
They are universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world with a formidable arsenal of hit songs that continue to propel sold-out tours and album chart action around the world. Now, Frontiers Music Srl presents an homage to Foreigner’s most successful album ever with “The Best of Foreigner 4 & More.”
Foreigner "4" spent more weeks at #1 on the Billboard charts than any artist in the history of Atlantic Records, including AC/DC, The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, and went on to sell more than 9 million albums worldwide. Fans will see why it "Feels Like The First Time" when Foreigner debuts these new recordings of the best of Foreigner ‘4’ along with several other chart hits. The band recorded these live high-definition versions of their most enduring anthems at the Borgata Hotel’s Music Box theatre in Atlantic City on October 3rd & 4th, 2014.
The set features some of rock’s best-known hits including “Feels Like The First Time,” “Cold As Ice,” “Hot Blooded” and Foreigner’s iconic ballad, “I Want To Know What Love Is,” along with a selection of best songs from Foreigner ‘4’. “Waiting For A Girl Like You,” “Urgent,” “Juke Box Hero,” “Girl On The Moon,” “Night Life,” “Break It Up” and “Woman In Black” are all featured with stellar performances.
“Our music has touched a lot of people worldwide,” says Foreigner founder, lead guitarist, Mick Jones. Also serving as executive producer of the new album, this Songwriters Hall Of Fame member wrote or co-wrote every Foreigner song and continues to lead his band to new heights. Mick continues: “Unwittingly, we've weaved our music into the fabric of people's lives.”
"Great songs, great performances and great production are timeless. '4' has all three in spades," says bassist and producer Jeff Pilson. "Bringing the album to life on stage with the energy and passion the band has always maintained, 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.”
Singer Kelly Hansen adds: "The idea for this recording came from the anniversary of the release as a way to celebrate. There are some tracks that were never previously performed live in this format, and it's great to be in a group with people who really 'get it' and understand how fortunate we are to be playing & performing such great material."
