Says FOREIGNER founding member and lead guitarist, Mick Jones, “I never could have imagined when I set out to create Foreigner forty years ago, that we’d still be touring around the world and performing the music we love all these years later. I can’t express the gratitude I feel when fans share stories of how our songs have been woven into their milestones and memories over the years.“

This exciting May release will contain new songs as well as all of the much-loved hits.
