Former Foreigner lead singer Lou Gramm is planning to release an EP later this spring. He made that announcement during a question-and-answer session on the ‘Rock Legends Cruise’ on Wednesday (with Premiere Radio's Sal Cirrincione).
Lou said, "It's interesting stuff. It's songs that weren't quite finished when I recorded my Ready or Not (1987) and Long Hard Look (1989) albums. But here 20-something years later I'm digging through my old tapes and I find these song ideas, or songs that were two-thirds done and I listen, I listen, I go, 'Boy, that was pretty good.' So, we got, I think, five or seven songs from that era that we're finishing up and reworking and they sound pretty damn good."
This will be his first new release in 14 years. Gramm also said he is hopeful that he and Foreigner founder and guitarist Mick Jones can finish songs they began working when they were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2013.
Lou said, "They're great songs. I think about them a lot. I have a couple of rough cuts of them, you know, and I think they would be great songs, but I think the clock is ticking too. He's not in good health at all."
Gramm said he's also ramping up for another tour this year.
