Features songs performed with Foo Fighters, Keith, Urban, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Jennifer Hudson and more.
JOHN FOGERTY’S much-anticipated album Wrote A Song For Everyone has now been released to critical acclaim. Rolling Stone gave it five stars and say “Wrote A Song For Everyone is a testament to the continuing truth and power in Fogerty’s greatest hits.”
Produced by John Fogerty, one of rock’s most important artists and a national treasure who’s sold over 100 million records, Wrote A Song For Everyone is a celebration of his iconic songbook and a collection of 12 classics and deep tracks from his remarkable canon of hits as well as two brand new songs, “Mystic Highway” and “Train of Fools. Fogerty performs alongside an array of today’s biggest superstars from the country, pop and rock worlds including Foo Fighters, Bob Seger, Keith Urban, Jennifer Hudson, Kid Rock, Brad Paisley, the Zac Brown Band, My Morning Jacket, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert and more.
The album also sees Fogerty teaming with an acclaimed new band like Dawes, who were eager to acknowledge the groundbreaking songwriter/guitarist’s titanic influence. Fogerty also recorded his classic “Lodi” with his sons Shane and Tyler Fogerty at Abbey Road Studios in London.
As Fogerty explained in a cover story in the “Legends” issue of American Songwriter, “I encouraged each of these artists to come up with their own vision of my song, rather than just redoing what I’d recorded in the past. I was hoping they’d have some different twist so it would be fresh, so I’d have to work, too. I wanted it to be something new.”
Wrote A Song For Everyone marks Fogerty ‘s ninth studio solo album since disbanding Creedence Clearwater Revival. Mixed by Bob Clearmountain, it was recorded in Los Angeles and Nashville except for “Proud Mary” which was recorded in New Orleans with Allen Toussaint and the Rebirth Brass Band. Fogerty recorded “Fortunate Son” with Foo Fighters at their 606 studio using “the” legendary Neve recording console featured in the #1 iTunes documentary Sound City.
