earMUSIC has issued that Just in time for Valentine’s Day FOREIGNER – will release the digital EP “Waiting For A Girl Like You 2014” which features five of their most haunting tracks.
As a special Valentine’s Day gift, the band also releases an E-Card App for their fans: VISIT HERE and create your personalized special E-Card with your own photo, every Foreigner song from their Ballads compilation and a personal greeting: What better way to say “I Love You” than with a Foreigner Ballad!
FOREIGNER’s record-breaking single “Waiting For A Girl Like You” may be 33 years old by now, however, it hasn’t lost a bit of its magic in all those years. On the contrary, the smash hit from 1981’s success album “4” shines almost brighter than ever today and has – amongst other hits like “Juke Box Hero” and of course the immortal monster ballad “I Want To Know What Love Is” – recently been featured in current Hollywood blockbusters and video games. That’s what they call “timeless”.
But FOREIGNER aren’t just “that band from the 80s”: Since mastermind Mick Jones instilled the band with fresh blood after the 2002 split by adding singer extraordinaire Kelly Hansen and once again established FOREIGNER high in the charts with 2009’s new hit album “Can’t Slow Down”, the worldwide excitement for FOREIGNER’s music has reached a new level. In 2013 Jones, alongside ex FOREIGNER singer Lou Gramm, was inducted to the Songwriter’s Hall Of Fame and hailed as a multi-dimensional “musician’s musician” – yet another proof of the timeless appeal of his sonic artistry.
Just two weeks after the release of their 14 track ballad compilation “I Want To Know What Love Is – The Ballads“ (earMUSIC) on January 31st the Anglo-American kings of melodic mainstream rock now present the five song digital only EP “Waiting For A Girl Like You 2014” as a special Valentine’s treat on February 14th. Needless to say, this collection features FOREIGNER’s two greatest love songs: a current version of their record single “Waiting For A Girl Like You” as well as their smash hit “I Want To Know What Love Is” from 1984’s “Agent Provocateur” in a new recording with outstanding Kelly Hansen on vocals. Those classics are complemented by three no less fascinating tracks from their last studio album “Can’t Slow Down”: “As Long As I Live“, “When It Comes To Love“ and “In Pieces“ which all prove how much power and energy the rejuvenated FOREIGNER still (or again) have.
Ten multi-platinum albums, sixteen Top 30 hits, more than 80 million albums sold worldwide: FOREIGNER can justifiably be named one of rock music’s greatest and most important bands. And, true to the motto “Can’t Slow Down”, their journey is far from over yet: The first part of 2014 will see FOREIGNER touring throughout the USA and Canada before departing for a spring international tour, during which Foreigner will play in Israel, Belgium, France, England, Scotland, Ireland and the Bahamas (plus a run through Germany later this year) in order to let us feel the magic of their songs at first hand.
But now, let’s celebrate lovers’ day – with FOREIGNER!
