Craft Recordings recently announced the forthcoming release of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s legendary long-lost recording of their 1970 show at London’s Royal Albert Hall, which will be available for the first time ever in multiple formats as Creedence Clearwater Revival At The Royal Albert Hall. The live album is set for release on September 16 and is available now for pre-order.
Today, ahead of the album release, CCR debuts the full live performance of their major hit, “Fortunate Son”. The advance single is available now to stream or download, while fans can also get a first peak at the concert footage from that night, with the launch of a full performance clip for “Fortunate Son” (at the Royal Albert Hall). The video captures bandmates, John Fogerty, Tom Fogerty, Doug Clifford, and Stu Cook, fully engrossed in the high-energy performance for one of their most beloved tracks, a song that’s been covered far and wide by artists including Pearl Jam, Rise Against, U2, Foo Fighters, and more, as well as being recognized by Rolling Stone as one of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and by Pitchfork as #17 on their list of The 200 Greatest Songs of the 1960s.
