EP cover for Fogerty's Factory - John Fogerty
Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty celebrates his 75th birthday with the release of a new digital EP.
“Fogerty’s Factory”, as it’s called, is a compilation of seven quarantine jam performances of CCR hits by Fogerty and his family, recorded in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. This EP features three tracks from a guesting on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series, along with songs that have been previously seen and heard on TV, satellite radio, and on the internet.
He even gave the iconic Cosmo’s Factory’s album cover a nod by recreating the photo with his family, also bringing his brother Bob to join in. He shared, “Our family got together and decided we would spread some joy with music in these trying times. We recreated Cosmo’s Factory, and it became Fogerty’s Factory. … My sons, daughter Kelsy, Julie, and me even got Bob Fogerty to shoot the cover photo, a total family affair!”
“Bringing a little light from our home to yours. We are having a little family fun together during the pandemic. It’s such a great feeling to be making and playin’ music surrounded by love. We all need to celebrate the life we have and remember how precious it is,” Fogerty added.
