Following the announcement of Creedence Clearwater Revivals’ forthcoming documentary concert film, Travelin’ Band: Creedence Clearwater Revival at the Royal Albert Hall, the band have released a new music video accompanying the track “Travelin' Band."
This release appears ahead of the June 18 Record Store Day-exclusive “Travelin’ Band (Live at the Royal Albert Hall)” limited-edition 7-inch single.
The original “Travelin’ Band”/“Who’ll Stop the Rain” single (featuring two songs from Creedence’s fifth studio album, 1970’s Cosmo’s Factory) was a worldwide smash, peaking at number two in the US, number eight in the UK, and number five in Canada.
Bolstered by hits like “Proud Mary” and “Born on the Bayou,” Creedence Clearwater Revival went on to release an astonishing three more studio albums throughout the course of 1969.
1970’s Cosmo’s Factory was the band’s fifth full-length release in a 24-month period! It has since been certified 4x Platinum.
"Finally, in 1970, I started thinking, Well, jeez, we’re getting really good and really popular,” John Fogerty told Guitar Player in a recent interview. “We went to Europe and played the Royal Albert Hall.”
The new "Travelin' Band” music video provides a unique view of Creedence Clearwater Revival at the peak of their worldwide fame.
With a collage of footage captured on the road from stage to airplane the film transports us back in time between 1969-1970 as the band travels the globe performing for an ever-growing legion of loyal fans.
