You may have heard a familiar Creedence Clearwater Revival tune on XRT in recent weeks that sounds a bit different than the original. That’s because Creedence frontman John Fogerty collaborated with the Foo Fighters to record a new take on “Fortunate Son” as part of his Wrote A Song For Everyone project.
Fogerty celebrated his 68th birthday this year with the release of his tenth studio album, Wrote A Song For Everyone. The album contains two new tracks, “Mystic Highway” and “Train Of Fools” along with a collection of classics recorded alongside a host of musicians.
Outside of the Foo Fighters, Fogerty recruited the likes of Dawes, My Morning Jacket, Jennifer Hudson, and more for new takes on old classics such as “Long as I Can See the Light”, “Have You Ever Seen the Rain”, and more.
Wrote A Song For Everyone debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and was Fogerty’s highest debut ever. Kick back this fall to Fogerty’s classic Americana sound by streaming selections from Wrote A Song For Everyone below.
