John Fogerty: New album scores top 5 debut on US charts

John Fogerty’s new album, “Wrote A Song For Everyone,” has debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200.

The project sold 51,000 copies in its first week, according to Billboard.

It’s Fogerty's highest charting album (and first top 10) since 1985's "Centerfield" climbed to No. 1.

“Wrote A Song For Everyone” features Fogerty pairing with artists like Foo Fighters, 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.

Fogerty launched the new album at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angles last week on his 68th birthday; check out video of the event here.
