Remix-and-free-download-alert! I'm hot blooded…I'm hot blooded.
Foreigner and Texas Motor Speedway collaborated on a remix of the band's hit song, "Hot Blooded," that incorporates lyrics supporting the speedway's "No Limits" marketing campaign and NASCAR racing in general. The song, which will be known as "Hot Blooded-No Limits," was unveiled to a throng of fans and special guests Tuesday evening during Texas Motor Speedway's 2012 Schedule Announcement Party at Gilley's Dallas. A free download of the song is available here.
Texas Motor Speedway plans to feature the remix of the chart-topping hit in its 2012 television and radio event advertising; to position it as the theme song for race weekends and special events; to offer downloads and ringtones of the song to its fans; and to engage in further discussions with the band on additional ideas to utilize the speedway-specific anthem. Foreigner has pledged to donate royalties from the song in continuing support of Speedway Children's Charities for whom the band has raised thousands of dollars as part of its NASCAR relationship.
"A couple of years ago we introduced one of the most legendary rock 'n' roll bands of all time, Foreigner, to NASCAR and they fell in love with the sport and the 'No Limits' attitude at Texas Motor Speedway," Gossage said. "Now we have entered into a unique creative arrangement with their legendary leader Mick Jones, lead singer Kelly Hansen and the guys in the band. They have rewritten one of the classic rock songs of all time. 'Hot Blooded' is now 'Hot Blooded - No Limits.' Who would have thought Foreigner, No Limits, Texas Motor Speedway, all together. They just cut the song in the studio and it's hot for race fans. It's been cool to work with them on the project."
"Whether we are watching the race from our friend (and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver) Carl Edwards' pit or playing our set for the fans on the start/finish line, the thrill of a Texas Motor Speedway event is a real rush," said Foreigner's leader and founder Mick Jones, who performed with the band for a NASCAR pre-race show at Texas Motor Speedway in April 2009. It truly is "Hot Blooded - No Limits."
The four-minute, 10-second song opens as the traditional "Hot Blooded" smash hit, but at the one-minute, 15-seconds in, lead singer Kelly Hansen begins the "No Limits" verses. Right on!
