It struck us as a natural fit when news broke last month that John Fogerty was going to re-record his old songs with some famous friends lending a hand. After all, his catalog, both as a member of Creedence Clearwater Revival and as a solo act, is as loved as anybody’s in rock history, and it continues to reach new generations of fans. In a recent interview, he gave a few details about ‘Wrote a Song for Everyone,’ including cutting ‘Who’ll Stop the Rain’ with Bob Seger.

“I heard him sitting in a little corner, strumming his guitar and singing ‘Who Will Stop the Rain?’ Fogerty told Rolling Stone. “He just sounded so great, he almost sort of inflicted an arrangement choice almost immediately. It was sort of spontaneous. I said, ‘We gotta hear what you’re doing right now at some point in how we’re treating this song.’ So that’s certainly part of the arrangement.”

Fogerty, who will perform entire CCR albums on his upcoming Canadian tour, isn’t only working with his fellow classic rockers. Country stars like Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert make appearances, as do Foo Fighters, who brought their own style to ‘Fortunate Son.’

“What a great band,” Fogerty continued. “It was outstanding to be there and play music that day. It’s not wildly different or exotically different from the original, but energy-wise it’s a lot closer to what the Foo Fighters sound like, just the swagger of thing.”

‘Wrote a Song for Everyone’ will be released on Vanguard Records in the fall.
