Known for creating the soundtrack of a generation, legendary singer/songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer John Fogerty has signed an exclusive recordings deal with BMG to release a 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.
BMG kicked off Fogerty's solo catalog reissue campaign with the 20th anniversary release of the Grammy Award-winning album Blue Moon Swamp (1997). Additional reissues from Fogerty's solo career include the chart-topping, multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated Centerfield (1985); gold-certified and Grammy-nominated albums Eye of the Zombie and Premonition (1998); Déjà vu (All Over Again) (2004), as well as a new Best of collection featuring highlights and favorites curated from his extensive solo catalog.
Eye of the Zombie is Fogerty's fourth solo effort and last studio release for nearly a decade. An apocalyptic departure from his swamp rock glory days buoyed by its menacing cover art, Eye of the Zombie leans on a more synthesized production and finds an indignant Fogerty coming down on consumerism and the music business. Yet no matter his mood he can't help but provide a few jewels like "Change in the Weather" and "Knockin' on Your Door" with fine performances from his new rhythm section of bassist Neil Stubenhaus and drummer John Robinson.
