John Fogerty Teams With Foo Fighters, Country Stars for New Album
Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban Among Contributors to 'Wrote a Song for Everyone,' Due This Fall
For his next album, John Fogerty is gathering some of the biggest names in country and rock to record his iconic songs. The Creedence Clearwater Revival legend announced on Tuesday the fall release of "Wrote a Song for Everyone," which will feature contributors ranging from Miranda Lambert to My Morning Jacket.
Billed as a celebration of Fogerty's vast songbook, "Wrote a Song" (Vanguard Records) will feature a mix of hits and fan favorites, as well as new songs. Foo Fighters will perform "Fortunate Son," while Bob Seger's gritty voice will help Fogerty with "Who'll Stop the Rain."
Other artists on the album include Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson and acclaimed California folk-rockers Dawes. More contributors and a track listing will be announced shortly.
In January, Fogerty contributed the new song "Swamp Water" as a theme to the FOX series "The Finder." He even played a musician in one episode. At the time, Fogerty told Billboard about working with Paisley and Lambert, whom he called "a great voice and a great, soulful presence in music, and really a delightful person."
"Wrote a Song for Everyone" is Fogerty's first release since 2009's "The Return of the Blue Ridge Rangers," a sequel of sorts to the singer's first solo album, 1973's "The Blue Ridge Rangers." His 2007 "comeback" album, "Revival," peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard 200 and No. 4 on Rock Albums.
