Foreigner unveiled a new rendition of their signature tune "I Want To Know What Love Is" to accompany the release of Netflix's new rom-com "The Love Birds.' 

Inspired by the original song's placement in the Michael Showalter-directed film's trailer, the bandmates premiered their at-home performance of their 1984 hit on Billboard.

"I want to know what the lovebirds are doin' on Netflix. Check it out," starts frontman Kelly Hansen as he kicks off the quarantine performance. Check out the rockers' full performance below. 

"The Lovebirds" follows the story of a couple (Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Rae) who test the limits of their relationship while figuring out a comically bizarre murder mystery. The film was originally set to premiere at South By Southwest, but with COVID-19 cancellations, is now available on Netflix instead.
