John Fogerty's first album in four years is a collection of many of the classics the legendary rocker is known for, but with a modern twist: "Wrote a Song for Everyone," due May 28 on Vanguard, enlists many of today's top stars across multiple genres and includes two new songs, "Mystic Highway" and "Train of Fools."

Fogerty gives his wife, Julie, the credit for the idea behind the album. "She really set the tone," he says. "She said, 'Why don't you get a lot of the people you like and do your songs?' So, that's exactly what I did. I'm a huge fan of these artists."
