Mick Jones has watched classic rock bands like the Eagles, AC/DC and Journey reach new levels of popularity thanks to Wal-Mart; now he wants to get his band, Foreigner, in on the action.
Foreigner is releasing a three-disc set of new and classic material in Wal-Mart stores on Sept. 29. “Can’t Slow Down” will include a CD of new material, another of remixed versions of Foreigner hits and another live DVD of performance footage, all for $12.
Jones says the Wal-Mart exclusive deal is the perfect way for the band -- best known for hits such as “Hot Blooded,” “I Want to Know What Love Is” and “Urgent” -- to reestablish itself.
“As we’ve been off the album scene for some time. We need a lot of support to get the word out,” Jones said in an interview. “Although we’ve played a tremendous amount of shows, a lot of the public doesn’t realize that we’re back.”
