  FOREIGNER TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM OF BALLADS
13 January 2014




Just in time for Valentine's Day earMUSIC releases 'I Want To Know What Love Is - The Ballads', 14 tracks previously never released on one album of Foreigner's best and most timeless ballads.

Embracing over thirty years of award-winning creativity, the album will be released in the UK on Monday February 3rd in two different editions: as a standard jewel case, and as a 2CD Special Edition-digipak.

As well as the title track, the forthcoming album includes thirteen songs including classic hits such as 'Waiting For A Girl Like You', 'Long, Long Way From Home' from 1977's self-titled debut album, as well as some modern masterpieces of their most recent albums Can't Slow Down from 2010 and Acoustique from 2011, all of which are state-of-the-art new recordings featuring Foreigner lead singer Kelly Hansen.

The Special Edition release is a must-have for all the die-hard Foreigner fans. Produced by noted Foreigner bass guitarist, Jeff Pilson, in December 2013, the bonus disc contains previously unreleased performances of all the hits and fan favourites, recorded from an acoustic show for the German radio station SWR1 in July 2013.

The album precedes Foreigner's April 2014 UK Tour with special guests Europe and FM, which kicks off Thursday April 3rd at Manchester O2 Apollo.

This is followed by dates in Newcastle, Glasgow, Nottingham, Sheffield, Portsmouth, Bristol, London and Wolverhampton.

Tickets can be booked from Live Nation and Ticketmaster. Foreigner will also play two Irish dates with special guests FM at Dublin Olympia (March 31) and Belfast Waterfront Hall Auditorium (April 1).









NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

aerosmith

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
