Kelly Hansen Thinks That Foreigner Will Just Release Tracks From Now On, No Albums

by VVN Music

Kelly Hansen, whose career has seen him as lead singer of Hurricane and Foreigner, has said that he believes the days of the full length album are gone.

While appearing on Nights With Alice Cooper, he said:

Personally, I don't think that making full albums is the way to go anymore; I just don't think that makes any sense. Because we could put a lot of time and energy and money into creating a full, old-school CD-style album, and then the day it's released it'll be free on the Internet. That's the way the world wants to do it, so we're gonna say, 'Well, that's not what we're gonna do.' I think that doing a song or two at a time, doing a mini-campaign behind it, working your social media angle on that, that's a little bit more in tune with what's happening now. And there are several tunes that are in different states of completion, so there'll be stuff coming out down the road.

Hansen joined Foreigner in 2005, replacing Chas West who had taken over for original lead singer Lou Gramm for less than a year. He recorded the albums Can't Slow Down (2009) and Acoustique (2011) with them along with a number of live albums.

He previously had sung with Hurricane, Air Pavilion, Unruly Child and Perfect World.
