John Fogerty Working on New Album
Thu, 07 Feb 2013 13:56:22
John Fogerty is still working on his new album Wrote a Song for Everyone. The onetime (and definitive) Creedence Clearwater Revival singer mixing the release in a California studio and the record features new versions of CCR hits like "Fortunate Son" and "Born on the Bayou," recorded with guests including Bob Seger, Kid Rock and the Foo Fighters. It'll be released via Vanguard on May 28.
The classic rock god said that he "didn't just mail people tracks" and he wanted to do it the old fashioned way -- by performing with his collaborators in the flesh as opposed to via equipment that defines the digital era.
"There was a long time when a lot of stuff was painful, but that doesn't exist anymore," he said about going over his old catalog while dealing with publishing rights and clearance issues, since the bayou-loving band split acrimoniously. " I wrote all these songs – they're back home with Daddy, like they should be."
