Foreigner have announced details about their upcoming live orchestral package.

Foreigner With The 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus will launch on April 27 via earMUSIC and was recorded over the course of two sold out shows in Lucerne, Switzerland, in May last year.

The 58-piece orchestra was conducted by Ernst van Tiel, with guitarist Mick Jones joining forces with the Grammy nominated composing/arranging team of Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer for the project.

Jones says: “I could never have imagined when I set out to create Foreigner 40 years ago, that we’d still be touring around the world and performing the music we love all these years later.

“Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer’s orchestral arrangements have shown us a new symphonic dimension of our music, which I hope our fans will enjoy.”

Foreigner With The 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus is now available for pre-order (opens in new tab). Find the tracklist below, along with Foreigner’s upcoming tour dates.
