John Fogerty’s Star-Studded Duets Album Out This May
When John Fogerty delayed his new duets album back in August, it was supposedly to add “new original songs and notable surprises.” Now the former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman has made good on his word, releasing the album’s new (star-studded) tracklist. Titled Wrote A Song For Everyone, the album will be released May 28 on Vanguard Records.
The collaborators that were initially announced were pretty impressive: Foo Fighters, Bob Seger, Kid Rock, Jennifer Hudson, Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, My Morning Jacket and Dawes. The main additions to the finished album are Tom Morello, Zac Brown Band and Allen Toussaint.
As for the new original songs Fogerty promised when he pushed back the album, two of those ended up Wrote A Song For Everyone, titled “Mystic Highway” and “Train of Fools.” The new tracks should help to differentiate the album, which is comprised primarily of Fogerty’s biggest hits with and without CCR. Full tracklist below.
Fogerty fans watching Sunday’s Super Bowl apparently got a taste of the album. The CBS broadcast used Fogerty’s duet of “Born on the Bayou” with Kid Rock during the big game.
He will tour this year, including performances at next month’s SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas; he also has a few dates with Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players.
Additionally, Fogerty is penning a memoir, set for release in 2014.
