Kenny Chesney Covers Foreigner’s “I Want to Know What Love Is” on New Album, “Cosmic Hallelujah”

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I’m older

He may be a little older at 48 years old, but that hasn’t stopped Kenny Chesney from getting creative with a hidden track on his 17th studio album, Cosmic Hallelujah, which drops tomorrow (Oct. 28).

On track No. 12—which isn’t referenced on the album’s track listing or liner notes—Kenny covers “I Want to Know What Love Is,” a single from Foreigner’s 1984 album, Agent Provocateur. Written and composed by Foreigner’s Mick Jones, the tune was the band’s biggest hit, reaching No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart in February 1985.

Nash Country Daily got a sneak listen to the hidden track, and while it won’t ever be mistaken for Foreigner’s original, Kenny’s laid-back vocals and the frolicking guitars more than hold their own, providing a treat-worthy capper to the album that Kenny fans will surely dig.
