Former Foreigner frontman Lou Gramm has confirmed that he is reuniting with guitarist Mick Jones to work on new music, but it will be for their solo albums and not the arena rock band's next album.
"Sometime in September, Mick and I are gonna get together and write some music," Gramm said to Rochester, N.Y.'s 95.1 the Brew, according to Ultimate Classic Rock. "I'm excited about it and very much looking forward to it.
"I'm actually helping him with a couple of songs on a solo album that he's gonna be releasing, and he's gonna help me with a couple of songs on an album that I'll be releasing next year."
Although Jones was recently quoted as saying that he and Gramm were considering working together on leftover music from the 1980s, Gramm says that the material is much newer.
"It's actually the songs we were writing, working on together when we split up in 2003," Gramm says. "So those were songs that were done at the end of the '90s and early '00s, and they're really good."
