Fans of Foghat have been rewarded for their patience with the latest release of ‘She’s a Little Bit of Everything,’ the second single from their first new studio album in seven years, “Sonic Mojo”.
The late Kim Simmonds co-wrote ‘She’s a Little Bit of Everything,’ which just like Foghat’s classic ‘Slow Ride,’ starts off with nothing but a drumbeat, followed by fuzzy guitar and, just like that famous song, this one also celebrates women, albeit in a totally classier way.
As Bryan Bassett declares: “The song is a straight-up blues rocker that’s quickly becoming a crowd favorite in our live show.”
Scott Holt says: “What an honor to be part of a song written by Kim and performed with Roger! It’s a straight rock and roll track that celebrates women! In all of her power, grace and beauty. What else is there to celebrate if not women?!?”
While Roger Earl concludes: “As soon as I heard this song, I knew it was for us. I claimed that it was written about Kim’s wife, Debi, but she is far too fine a person to ever admit that that’s where it came from. I really believe that this is where Kim got the inspiration for this song. It’s probably my favorite. Thank you, Kim.”
“Sonic Mojo” sees Foghat tip their hat to great artists that came before them, as well as giving plenty of winks and nods from the current lineup. While there are songs on the album written by Willie Dixon, (‘Let Me Love You Baby’), B.B. King (‘She’s Dynamite’), and Chuck Berry (‘Promised Land’), Foghat shows they can still boogie with the best of them.
“Sonic Mojo” is exactly what Foghat will be bringing to their loyal legion of fans on November 10 in the form of their new album on the band’s label, Foghat Records, which is distributed by Select-O-Hits. It will be available as a single CD with 12-tracks and a six-page gatefold cover, as well as an 11-track, limited edition 180gram, purple neon vinyl.
