New Releases

New Van Morrison single ‘Transformation’

Roll With The Punches reconnects Van not just with the music he grew up with, but also to the musicians he would have encountered when he was on the road with Them during the 1960s blues boom: Manfred Mann’s Paul Jones, The Yardbirds’ Jeff Beck, Chris Farlowe…the latter two who both appear on new single Transformation.

Van Morrison releases his 37th studio album ‘Roll With The Punches’ this September. The 15 track album features raw, intimate interpretations of rhythm and blues classics by the likes of Bo Diddley, Mose Allison, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and Lightnin’ Hopkins, plus five new self-written numbers. The album was produced by Van Morrison and recorded with an incredible team of collaborators including Chris Farlowe, Georgie Fame, Jeff Beck, Paul Jones and Jason Rebello.
