Legendary Band Celebrates Milestone 40th Anniversary With Career-Spanning 
Remastered Double-Disc Hits Collection Featuring Two Newly Recorded Tracks

40 Available On CD, Vinyl, And Digitally From Rhino This May/June

40th Anniversary Headline Tour Kicks Off July 11 In Syracuse, New York

​​

LOS ANGELES – Foreigner will celebrate 40 years as one of rock’s most popular and enduring acts with a new career-spanning compilation titled 40 that features 40 hits from 40 years. This summer, the band will also launch an extensive 40th Anniversary U.S. tour with Cheap Trick and Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience. Tickets are available now at livenation.com

Rhino will release 40 on May 19 as a double-CD set for $19.98 that includes 40 songs recorded between 1977 and 2017. A double-vinyl version that features 23 songs will be released on June 16 for $31.98.

Following its self-titled debut in 1977, Foreigner went on to record some of rock’s most enduring anthems — “Juke Box Hero” and “Hot Blooded” — as well as the #1 smash “I Want To Know What Love Is.” The group has 10 multi-platinum albums to its credit and is one of the best-selling bands of all time, with worldwide sales in excess of 75 million. 

40 brings together the best songs from Foreigner’s nine studio albums, including all 16 of its Top 30 hits: “Feels Like The First Time,” “Cold As Ice,” “Waiting For A Girl Like You” and more. The collection features “Too Late” from the group’s 2008 retrospective No End In Sight and “The Flame Still Burns,” the title track from a vinyl EP released just last year, making its debut on CD in this collection. All prior recordings have been remastered and the album features two new tracks recorded especially for this release, “Give My Life For Love” and a new version of “I Don’t Want To Live Without You.”

The first disc covers Foreigner’s first five albums: Foreigner (1977), Double Vision (1978), Head Games (1979), 4 (1981) and Agent Provocateur (1984). The 21 tracks include some the group’s biggest hits (“Urgent” and “Feels Like The First Time”) as well as deeper cuts like “Luanne” and “Women.” The second disc features songs from Inside Information (1987), Unusual Heat (1991), Mr. Moonlight (1994) and Can’t Slow Down (2009), and features “Rain,” “When It Comes to Love” and “Heart Turns To Stone.”

FOREIGNER - Mick Jones (lead guitar), Kelly Hansen (lead vocals), Jeff Pilson (bass, vocals), Tom Gimbel (rhythm guitar, sax, vocals), Michael Bluestein (keyboards), Bruce Watson (guitar) and Chris Frazier (drums) – will hit the road this summer for their 40th Anniversary tour with  Cheap Trick and Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience. The tour kicks off on July 11 in Syracuse, New York.
