Foreigner are premiering a video for “The Flame Still Burns”, the title track to a 10-inch vinyl EP available on Record Store Day's Black Friday event on November 25.
Guitarist and founding member Mick Jones originally wrote the sing for the 1998 film "Still Crazy", which focuses on the career of a fictional 1970s rock band named "Strange Fruit." The tune went on to win the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for songwriting and this electric version marks the first time “The Flame Still Burns” has been officially recorded by Foreigner.
The first release to mark the band’s 40th anniversary, the EP also contains a live version of "Juke Box Hero" and the original recordings of "Feels Like The First Time" and "Long, Long Way From Home" from the group’s 1977 self-titled album debut.
1,500 copies of the Record Store Day exclusive release will be available; learn more at recordstoreday.com
Jones will publish the band’s first official biography, “A Foreigner’s Tale”, in 2017.
The project tells the story of the guitarist’s early career – including the formation of Foreigner in New York in 1976 via a series of jams – and the band’s worldwide success with 10 multi-platinum albums, 16 Top 30 hits and more than 75 million album sales.
