Foreigner

According to the press release,

"Iconic rock band FOREIGNER turned forty this year with one of the summer’s most popular tours. 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) rocked crowds while headlining amphitheaters and arenas around the world. With ten multi-platinum albums, sixteen top thirty hits, and worldwide album sales exceeding 75 million, songs like “I Want To Know What Love Is,” “Cold As Ice,” “Hot Blooded,” and “Juke Box Hero” continue to top the charts forty years into the game."

"To celebrate the 40th Anniversary, FOREIGNER released a 40th-anniversary album that features forty FOREIGNER tracks throughout the years entitled 40 – Forty Hits From Forty Years (RHINO). This album is a comprehensive compilation of original hits and several tracks from the current lineup featuring Kelly Hansen on vocals including “Can’t Slow Down,” “Too Late,” and the Top 20 AC hit “When It Comes To Love.” The album also features two new songs, “The Flame Still Burns,” and “Give My Life For Love,” a brand new song by Jones."

"Responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems including “Juke Box Hero,” “Cold As Ice, Hot Blooded,” “Waiting For A Girl Like You,” “Feels Like The First Time,” “Urgent,” “Head Games,” “Say You Will,” “Dirty White Boy,” “Long, Long Way From Home” and the worldwide #1 hit, “I Want To Know What Love Is,” FOREIGNER continues to rock the charts more than forty years into the game with massive airplay and continued Billboard Top 200 album success.  FOREIGNER also features strongly in every category in Billboard’s Greatest of All Time listing.  Catalog sales often eclipse those of Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Def Leppard, Van Halen, Aerosmith and most of their Classic Rock peers."
