|Wrote a Song for Everyone (Vanguard Records) is a celebration of the iconic songbook of one of rock’s most important artists and a national treasure who’s sold over 100 million albums. Produced by Fogerty, the album is a collection of 12 classics and deep tracks (Creedence Clearwater Revival and solo material) from his remarkable canon of hits recorded in collaboration with today’s biggest superstars from the country, pop and rock worlds, plus two brand new solo songs.
To mark the Tuesday, May 28 release of his much-anticipated new album Wrote a Song for Everyone,
John Fogerty will perform a very special one-night-only album release
and birthday bash concert on the same day at the El Rey in Los Angeles.
May 28 also marks the birthday of the Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll
Hall of Fame inductee. A limited amount of pre-sale tickets for this
intimate show will be available Tuesday, May 14 to members of Fogerty’s

8:30 PM Pacific time, will be filmed and broadcast live on AXS TV.
Wrote a Song for Everyone marks Fogerty's ninth studio solo album since disbanding Creedence Clearwater Revival. Mixed by Bob Clearmountain, it was recorded in Los Angeles and Nashville except for "Proud Mary" which was recorded in New Orleans with Allen Toussaint and the Rebirth Brass Band. Fogerty recorded “Fortunate Son” with Foo Fighters at their 606 studio using "the" legendary Neve recording console featured in the #1 iTunes documentary Sound City.
