Listen: Johnny Foreigner Stream ‘NAMES’ EP

Released on a set of six badges - yes, make of that what you will - the three-piece are now a four-piece.

Johnny Foreigner released their brand new EP ‘NAMES’ today, and we have the stream of it. Right now.

Released on a set of six badges - yes, make of that what you will - the three-piece are now a four-piece, as frontman Alexei explains in this short introduction to their latest output.

‘We made it in the small hours of last week in our super secret Digbeth studio, with our long time producer Dominique James. It’s our first recordings as a 4 piece, so it’s totally appropriate that, as the first release with our Swerp, we now sound even more like all them American bands people say we sound like. If certain songs ended up as our Kieron Gillen style parable, and vs everything a Grant Morrison sprawl, then please let this be our Warren Ellis run.’

‘NAMES’ is also the first release from the band on US label Swerp, and also stands as their first original material since 2011’s ‘Johnny Foreigner vs Everything’ was released.

The tracklisting for ‘NAMES’ is as follows, and the stream can be found below that.
