Phonte, Nicolay and the rest of the Foreign Exchange collective will release an CD/DVD called Dear Friends: An Evening With The Foreign Exchange, which will be available June 28th. No word if it will come with an acoustic version of their rendition of “Return Of The Mack,” however. SHAKE UPDATE: It won’t haha. In fact, I’ve added the tracklist after the jump (which includes two new studio records) and more info below.

This past February at SoundPure Studios in Durham, NC, The Foreign Exchange gave a private acoustic show for 40 randomly-selected friends and supporters. The evening, captured on both audio and video, is the basis of their latest release, “Dear Friends: An Evening With The Foreign Exchange.”

Serving as a companion piece to their latest release “Authenticity” and as a glimpse into their acclaimed live show, “Dear Friends” is a double-disc CD/DVD digipak that features the full acoustic concert performed by the band’s current touring lineup of Zo!, Sy Smith, and singer/songwriter Jeanne Jolly. In addition to the live concert recordings, the release also features two new studio tracks; “Steal Away” featuring Jeanne Jolly and “All The Kisses” featuring Amber & Paris Strother of rising indie soul trio KING.

    Praying that Phonte is really dropping a solo rap album in september and that its 90% dope RHYMES and beats ( by 9th ).

    Did they forget the Connected album happened? That was the only one I really got into…

  • Phonte is dope.

    Check out this underground hip-hop album for free.

    Like Phonte’s singing but c’mon man we’ve waited long enough give us a solo rap album.

    Automatic purchase.

  • I WAS THERE. And it was awesome. Worth your scrill for sure when it drops. Not wanting to spoil any surprises, but they remix one of their songs in there in amazing fashion.

  • Phonte is authentic! I like the fact that he does what he feels. However, I do hope he gives us an album that is based around his hip hop side of things. I respect his singing but I wanna hear some of that clever spittin’ he brings to the table as well. Maybe a nice dose of both (singing/rhyming) will satisfy us all.
