John Fogerty Wrote a Song For Everyone On His Star-Studded Album Set to Arrive in May
Full details have been revealed for John Fogerty’s long-awaited collaborative album, Wrote a Song for Everyone, which is now scheduled to be released on May 28. The record will feature 14 songs, most of them new renditions of classic Creedence Clearwater Revival songs written by Fogerty that he re-recorded with help from a variety of famous music artists.
Among the stars who’ve contributed to the project are Bob Seger, Foo Fighters, Kid Rock, Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello, R&B singer Jennifer Hudson, alternative rockers My Morning Jacket and country luminaries Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Alan Jackson, Keith Urban and The Zac Brown Band. In addition, Wrote a Song for Everyone includes two new solo recordings from Fogerty , “Mystic Highway” and “Train of Fools” as well as a version of CCR’s “Lodi” that features John’s sons, Shane and Tyler.
Wrote a Song for Everyone is available for pre-order now from Amazon.com and iTunes. Those pre-ordering the album will immediately be able to download one of the tracks for free, a rendition of “Born on the Bayou” featuring Kid Rock. That song got its premiere on Sunday during the Super Bowl XLVII telecast.
Fogerty will be touring this year in support of Wrote a Song for Everyone, and among his shows will be an as-yet-unannounced performance next month at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.
