By | 20 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/09/the-foreign-exchange-maybe-shell-dream-of-me"> When Phonte sends a mailout, it's so concise that there's no need to paraphrase or alter it. Give it, just as it's received because the content is too beautiful to be presented in any other way. 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. Peace, Phonte Thank You For Listening, Part 1: Connected Thank You For Listening, Part 2: Leave It All Behind Thank You For Listening, Part 3: Authenticity The new album is in stores and here's <a href="http://www.theforeignexchangemusic.com/2010/10/where-to-buy-authenticity.php">a handy list of retailers</a> in case you're searching for it.

For those that don't know, Foreign Exchange is what happens when Phonte Coleman lays vocals on a Nicolay beat; it sounds a little bit like magic.
