Track listing announced for new Foreigner album available 9/29 exclusively at Wal-Mart

After taking a couple of baby steps into the recording studio with new lead singer Kelly Hansen last year, Foreigner released "Too Late," the first studio recording with Hansen on vocals, as part of the 2008 Foreigner anthology release No End In Sight:  The Very Best of Foreigner.

I had the pleasure of seeing the band live for the first time with Hansen (and former Dokken bass player Jeff Pilson)  that same year, and Hansen was excellent, and did a really nice job filling a tough pair of shoes, left vacant by former singer Lou Gramm.

Finally, fans will have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Foreigner album featuring both Hanson and Pilson, to be released on September 29th.

Foreigner joins the growing list of bands making the controversial decision to release a new album as a big box exclusive, with the announcement that Wal-Mart will be the exclusive retailer for their new release, titled Can't Slow Down.  The three disc package features an album of twelve new tracks, including a fresh version of "Fool For You Anyway," an album track staple originally featured on their 1977 self-titled debut with lead vocals from Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones.

"To me, the most important thing is that the band regains recognition again and proves in a way that it is a force. It's been around for 30 years, and there are few other bands that have been around for that long," said Jones, a founding member of the band. "I'd like to regain our position in that club."

Jones produced the new album, and brought in big gun producer Marti Fredriksen to help oversee the recording of Can't Slow Down, the first full-length Foreigner studio album in 15 years.

I'm stoked, and can't wait to hear the results.  Here's the full press release with the album tracklisting, and also a tracklisting for the second disc of remixed (yes, they are the original versions) hits.  Disc three is a recently recorded live DVD, but unfortunately, there's no track listing for that one yet.

Will this one sell a ton of units like the Journey Wal-Mart exclusive did?

I guess we'll find out soon enough!

FOREIGNER CAN’T SLOW DOWN WITH NEW ALBUM TO BE AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY AT WALMART

Three-Disc Set Combines New Music With Album Of Remixed Hits And DVD

Legendary Group To Tour North America This Summer

LOS ANGELES -- Foreigner, one of the world's most popular and enduring rock bands, will release a new three-disc collection, including a CD album of all new music, a CD album of the band's original hit recordings, and a DVD of the band in concert and beyond. Foreigner's latest will be available from Rhino Entertainment September 29, exclusively through Walmart, for $12.00.

Twelve tracks on the new album are produced by Mick Jones and Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith and Buckcherry), with celebrated Grammy®-winning producer Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse) contributing the Mick Jones-penned "Fool For You Anyway." The title track, CAN'T SLOW DOWN, was written by Mick Jones, Kelly Hansen, and Marti Frederiksen as a tribute to NASCAR in celebration of Foreigner's appearance at the Samsung 500 at the Texas Motor Speedway earlier this year. NASCAR fans bought so many CDs that day that Foreigner's 2008 release No End In Sight: The Very Best Of Foreigner was propelled back into the Billboard Top 200. The collection's second disc contains 10 remixes by Marti Frederiksen and Anthony Focx of some of the band's most well known songs, including "Feels Like The First Time," "Cold As Ice," "Urgent," "Hot Blooded," and "I Want To Know What Love Is." The remixes bring a new energy and sound definition to these classic songs.

The DVD captures the band performing many of its hits live in 5.1 surround sound. The DVD also contains performances filmed during the band's recently completed European tour. Also featured is a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of CAN'T SLOW DOWN, from writing sessions in New York, Nashville, and Los Angeles to the Walmart shareholders meeting where the exclusive partnership behind this project was finalized.

Foreigner has sold more than 70 million albums worldwide. The band will commence a 45-show headline trek across North America today.

    Oh, and in continuation of the thoughts from the Facebook thread, I'm maintaining reservations about how the new material might be 'cause though I've loved a LOT of what Gramm has done outside Foreigner, the Johnny Edwards album left me totally flat, so it seems that somehow, the Foreigner magic has previously required the collaboration of Jones/Gramm (though most of the writing credits seem to lie with Jones). I really hope it's a great album, though, because I love Kelly's voice and other work, and I respect and love most Foreigner. I'll give it a chance, though I probably won't be buying it from Walmart unless it turns out that it never, EVAR gets released otherwise.. I don't buy into that sort of corporate exclusivity scheme, as a rule.
