Foreigner founder Mick Jones says that the material he and co-founder/vocalist Lou Gramm have been working on may be ready for release next year. The pair have been in contact after getting inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame last year.
Jones tells Classic Rock magazine that Gramm uncovered some previously unreleased tracks:
"Lou told me a few weeks ago he's discovered a few songs we were writing in the '80s, but never quite finished," he began. "We might take time next year to bring a couple of those out of the vaults . . . It's a question of wading through them and finding a cassette machine to play them on."
He added that should Gramm return to the Foreigner fold, the band would keep on his replacement, Kelly Hansen:
"Kelly has dedicated everything to the band. He's phenomenal. So anything I do will be sensitive to that. If Lou and I do something, it'll be inclusive. No way will he replace Kelly."
