VIDEO: Foo Fighters join John Fogerty on new album

The Foo Fighters are one of the many guests joining John Fogerty on his new album, “Wrote A Song For Everyone,” due May 28.

The all-star duets project features Fogerty pairing with artists like Bob Seger, Kid Rock, Zac Brown Band, My Morning Jacket, and others to perform tunes from his legendary songbook, including solo tracks and Creedence Clearwater Revival cuts.

John teamed up with the Foos at their studio to record CCR's 1969 anti-war anthem "Fortunate Son,” and is sharing a video preview of the session.

"It was palpable, the air," explains Fogerty of the atmosphere in the room. "You could tell a band was in there. It was a unique group of people."

To launch his new album, Fogerty is hosting a special one-night-only show on May 28th at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles; the performance will be broadcast live on AXS TV.
