The Foreign Exchange: Thank You For Listening

Here's something good for you to watch. The Foreign Exchange - Nicolay, Phonte, and several others - had a brand new album come out this week called Authenticity.

What started out as more of a Hip Hop collaboration between the two leads, one on the beat and the other the mic, has since morphed into a musical collaboration of many offering a more soulful, grown-up sound that spans several genres. I haven't yet had the opportunity to check out the new album, but I have a feeling it'll be in rotation for a while once I do. As a lead in to their new project, The Foreign Exchange sits down in this three-part video to discuss the group and its direction. I highly recommend taking a look. Video below, plus a note from Phonte.

Thank You For Listening (A Short Film About The Foreign Exchange)

Friends and Fam,

To coincide with the release of our new album "Authenticity," we hope you will enjoy the short film "Thank You For Listening;" shot and directed by Sandrine Orabona (videographer for Michael Jackson's 'This Is It') and Anke Thommen.

This short piece sums up the story of +FE, as well as incorporating live show footage, candid interviews and behind the scenes footage of Phonte, Nicolay, YahZarah, and the rest of the +FE Music family. For anyone wanting to get hip to the music and story of The Foreign Exchange, this video is the perfect entry point.

Thanks so much for your support.
