Tag: Juke Box Heroes: Brand New Digital Recordings of Foreigner’s Greatest Hits
FOREIGNER is celebrating the 35th anniversary of the band’s formation by going acoustic, electric and live — all on the same package.
“Feels Like the First Time” is a CD/DVD package that will be released by Razor & Tie exclusively via Wal-Mart on Sept. 13, while the audio components will also be available on iTunes. The set comprises a pair of CDs — “Acoustique: The Classics Unplugged” and “Juke Box Heroes: Brand New Digital Recordings of Foreigner’s Greatest Hits,” along with the DVD “Live in Chicago,” which was filmed in March during two shows at the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles, Ill., and will also be shown during PBS‘ pledge drive this fall.
“This is an extra rubber stamp on our claim to this (catalog),” Kelly Hansen, who’s been Foreigner’s frontman since 2005, tells Billboard.com. “You are constantly having to re-establish yourself. There was a time in the late 90s when the band suffered in reputation, and I think we’ve spent a good part of the last six years going all over the world to re-establish that this band is very strong and relevant and full of great songs.”
