John Fogerty’s new album Wrote A Song For Everyone has entered the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart at #3, selling 51,319 copies in its first week. This marks the Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee’s highest-debuting album of his career (including Creedence Clearwater Revival releases). In addition, this is Fogerty’s highest charting record since 1985's Centerfield hit #1. One of rock’s most important artists and a national treasure who’s sold over 100 million albums, Fogerty has also announced preliminary tour dates for the fall (see dates below).
Produced by Foferty, Wrote A Song For Everyone is generating widespread praise and has received Rolling Stone magazine’s highest rating--a rare 5 stars--in a lead review in the current issue: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/albumreviews/wrote-a-song-for-everyone-20130523?stop_mobi=yes
A celebration of Fogerty’s iconic songbook, the album is a collection of 14 songs: 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 including the new single and video “Mystic Highway.” Wrote A Song For Everyone was released by Vanguard Records on May 28, Fogerty’s birthday, when he performed a sold-out, intimate one-night-only album release and birthday bash concert at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles that was broadcast live on AXS TV and also simulcast on legendary radio station KLOS (95.5fm in Los Angeles)
