John Fogerty has confirmed that his upcoming album will be centered around classic Creedence Clearwater Revival songs, but the album’s engineer says the result is completely new songs. Kid Rock, Bob Seger, Jennifer Hudson and the Foo Fighters are among the confirmed musicians who contributed to ‘Wrote a Song for Everyone.’

“It’s no nostalgia fest,” Bob Clearmountain tells Rolling Stone. Fogerty says he waited to record with each of his chosen partners until they could meet in studio and do it live. “I didn’t want to just mail people tracks because then everyone would just do ‘Proud Mary’ like the old record,” he says in the same interview.

He’s been working on the album since 2010, and originally scheduled it for release in October 2012. A press release about the delay suggested there would be original material on the album, something that is not addressed in the Rolling Stone article. The focus is on the old CCR songs, however. Fogerty has finally regained publishing rights to the songs after a lengthy legal battle.

“I wrote all these songs,” he said. ” They’re back home with Daddy, like they should be.”

Confirmed songs on ‘Wrote a Song for Everyone’ include ‘Fortunate Son,’ ‘Born on the Bayou’ and ‘Long As I Can See the Light.’
