For Foreigner fans, it really does feel like the very first time.

Led by sole original member Mick Jones, the erstwhile jukebox heroes are set to release their first new music in over a decade. The single "Too Late" is due out June 17 in advance of a new double-disc greatest hits collection, which will hit stores July 15.

Foreigner, whose '70s and early '80s heyday produced such FM staples as "Cold as Ice," "Hot Blooded," "Double Vision" and "I Want to Know What Love Is," returned to the studio earlier this year to record the new tune with frontman Kelly Hansen, who replaced original singer Lou Gramm in 2005.

"The song definitely has our signature sound. It's immediately recognizable and shows off the great talent in this band," said Jones, the band's guitarist and principal songwriter.

"Too Late" will be included on Rhino Records' No End in Sight: The Very Best of Foreigner, which features 32 of the group's prime cuts on two CDs, along with a new acoustic version of "Say You Will" and live renditions of "Starrider" and a medley of "Juke Box Hero" and Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love."

To promote the set, Foreigner is hitting the road this summer, sharing a double bill with Bryan Adams in a tour that kicks off July 15 in Augusta, Maine.
