Love in Flying Colors, the new album from the Foreign Exchange, is refreshingly upbeat, and richly emotional. A collection of love songs, the record is happier than the group’s 2010 release, Authenticity, but just as complex. Nicolay and Phonte capture the dream-like, and yet moody, experience of being in love – the euphoria that comes with the beginning of a relationship mixed with the doubt carried over from past pain.
The Foreign Exchange has just dropped the first single from their forthcoming album Love In Flying Colors, and it’s called “Call it Home.” Check out the video below. “Call it Home” is out now in digital music stores, and features an instrumental version of the song along with a b-side track that won’t be on the album called “Pity.”
Phonte and Nicolay, also known as The Foreign Exchange, will release their new album, Love in Flying Colors, on September 24. Check out the tracklisting below:
With +FE Music: The Reworks, the Foreign Exchange family has released an album of beautifully progressive soul music. The release features remixes of past tracks – actually the word “remix” doesn’t quite capture the record’s adventurous sounds. These songs truly are reworks, most of them jumping into entirely different sub-genres from their original versions. And, while many remix albums are usually bonus projects or holdovers to satiate fans while they wait for the next real album, The Reworks stands on its own as a composition. In fact, it shines.
“So What If It Is” is The Foreign Exchange’s new single from their +FE Music: The Reworks remix compilation. The 2-disc set features remixes by Nicolay, Zo! 4hero, ?uestlove, and James Poyser. The release precedes +FE Music’s upcoming releases: ManMade by Zo! and The Foreign Exchange’s next long player, Love In Flying Colors.
