Legendary rock band Foghat is back in the spotlight with the release of their latest music video, “She’s a Little Bit of Everything.” This exciting video offers fans a sneak peek of their upcoming 17th album, “Sonic Mojo,” set to launch on November 10th. Rock enthusiasts can get a taste of what’s to come by enjoying the video, which is available for viewing.
“Sonic Mojo” represents a significant milestone for Foghat, marking their return to the studio after a seven-year hiatus.
The album holds a special connection to the late Kim Simmonds, the founder and guitarist of Savoy Brown, who passed away in 2022. Foghat’s drummer, Roger Earl, shared insights about Simmonds, describing him as a “blues man” with a remarkable musical touch that resonated deeply.
Kim Simmonds played a pivotal role in Roger Earl’s career, offering him his first big break as a member of Savoy Brown. While Earl and singer “Lonesome” Dave Peverett eventually departed Savoy Brown to form Foghat in 1971, they maintained a lasting friendship and collaboration with Simmonds. The two bands continued to share stages and eventually reunited in the studio.
