John Fogerty featuring Allen Toussaint

John Fogerty will make his Vanguard Records debut on May 28th with the release ofWrote a Song for Everyone. It’s his ninth solo album, and first since 2009′s The Blue Ridge Rangers Rides Again.

 

The album finds Fogerty reworking his celebrated catalog alongside an array of guests, including Foo Fighters (“Fortunate Son”), My Morning Jacket (“Long As I Can See the Light”), Dawes (“Someday Never Comes”), and Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello (“Wrote a Song for Everyone”). Also included are two all-new compositions titled, “Mystic Highway” and “Train of Fools”.

Fogerty will support the album with an appearance at this year’s SXSW followed by an as-yet-announced tour.

John Fogerty had for years taken the notion of a "solo" album literally -- sequestering himself in a studio and playing all the instruments. But those days, it seems, are long over.


“The real way to make music is with other people,” said the former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman on Thursday at a listening party for his upcoming collection of collaborations, Wrote a Song for Everyone. “Sharing it by yourself really sucks; you need to share it with others.

Featuring big-name acts updating CCR classics, along with a couple from his solo career and two new songs, the album is a solid addition to an accomplished career. And it's no wonder -- just take a look at the guest list: Bob Seger, Kid Rock, Foo Fighters, My Morning Jacket, Jennifer HudsonAllen Toussaint, Dawes and Zac Brown Band. 

“I really have loved this project, and I really love all these artists,” Fogerty said in front of a small crowd of invited guests at the Hotel Cafe in Hollywood. “It’s maybe the best thing I’ve ever done as far as making a record.”
