Foreigner Singer Completes His 1st Christian Rock Album
Former Foreigner frontman Lou Gramm has finished recording his first Christian Rock album, which he hopes to release this fall.
Gramm, who has been a Born Again Christian since the early '90s, tells Billboard.com that the as-yet-untitled album "rocks from one end to the next - that kind of attitude but with a different subject matter." He recorded it in his hometown of Rochester, NY.
Reaction to this direction from fans of Foreigner and his previous solo work has been "mixed," Gramm acknowledges. "I'm not sure what people think - that by doing a Christian Rock album you suddenly become a completely different person or your creative self changes? It really just means that a lot of the subject matter changes. A lot more thought goes into the lyrics and not a ton of songs about popping that girl after the show."
