Legendary singer/songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member John Fogerty has signed an exclusive recordings deal with BMG to release his new solo album and reissue his renowned solo catalog.
As co-founder of Creedence Clearwater Revival, the group’s chief musical architect, and as a solo artist, Fogerty’s works rank as some of the most influential in American music history. Currently in the studio working on material for the full-length album to be released next year, BMG will kick off Fogerty’s solo catalog reissue campaign beginning with the 20th anniversary release of the Grammy Award-winning album Blue Moon Swamp on CD, 180g black vinyl, limited-edition 180g blue vinyl, and digital platforms on Nov. 17.
Originally released May 20, 1997, Blue Moon Swamp won Best Rock Album at the 40th Grammy Awards in 1998, with the song ‘Blueboy’ receiving a Grammy nomination for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance that same year.
Blue Moon Swamp would go on to receive gold certification by the RIAA. The 20th anniversary release of Blue Moon Swamp now features a new album cover showcasing the famed concert backdrop from the album’s original supporting tour. Additional reissues from Fogerty’s solo career include the chart-topping and multi-platinum Centerfield, the gold-certified albums Eye of the Zombie and Premonition, Déjà vu (All Over Again), as well as a new Best of collection featuring highlights and favorites curated from his extensive solo catalog. Release dates to be announced.
Fogerty said, “I’m excited to partner with BMG for the next chapter of my music career. Their enthusiasm and confidence, affording me the creative freedom to make the music I want to make, has been absolutely refreshing. We have so many new and intriguing ideas that I look forward to sharing with everyone soon."
Following two sold-out, critically-acclaimed Las Vegas residencies in 2016, Fogerty returned to the city for a series of live shows in March and May this year with his debut at the Wynn’s Encore Theatre performing John Fogerty: Fortunate Son In Concert. Recently, the Wynn announced a slate of 15 additional live performances through October 7 and January 10 – 20, 2018.
