The album celebrates Foreigner’s 40th anniversary of their first release with Atlantic Records.[2] The album includes all Foreigner’s’ biggest hits from 1977 to 2017. It was released through Atlantic Records and contains 40 tracks.[3] To promote the album Foreigner toured.[4]

David Chiu from Popmatters said, “This year is the 40th anniversary of the release of Foreigner’s self-titled debut, and marking that milestone is this latest two-CD greatest hits compilation, simply called 40, which collects 40 (get it?) of the band’s hits (the title and artwork are a nod to the band’s 1981 smash album 4). There have been similar Foreigner double-disc packages (Jukebox Heroes and No End in Sight), but 40 is the most current by including tracks from 2009’s Can’t Slow Down and the group’s recent single ‘The Flame Still Burns’.”[5]

Neil Jeffries from LouderSound said, “This new collection is a career-spanning two-CD set that features 40 remastered tracks from 40 years. And it’s all packaged to look a little like Foreigner 4, their greatest success from those four decades. What could be neater? There’s a 23-song double-vinyl version but, really, why would you bother with that?”[6]
