Foreigner mark Netflix debut of The Lovebirds with new version of I Want To Know What Love Is

Foreigner are streaming a new, isolation performance of their 1984 smash, “I Want To Know What Love Is.”

When the group discovered the “Agent Provocateur” hit was featured in the trailer for the Netflix film, “The Lovebirds”, Mick Jones, Kelly Hansen, Bruce Watson and Michael Bluestein got together on Zoom to re-record the song quarantine-style.

Directed by Michael Showalter, the romantic comedy – which stars Issa Rae, Kumail Nanjiani and Paul Sparks – tells the story of what happens when a couple “in the fast lane to splitsville accidentally careens into a murder and they take off on a wild race to find the killer and clear their names.”

The Foreigner isolation performance arrives on May 22, the same day The Lovebirds debuts on Netflix.

“I Want To Know What Love Is” reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and in at least eight other countries upon its original release.
