Van Morrison To Release Fifth Album In Two Years

Van Morrison has been on a creative roll in the past two years. He is about to release ‘The Prophet Speaks’, his fifth album since 30 September 2016.

Morrison started the momentum with ‘Keep Me Singing’ (2016) then followed up with ‘Roll With the Punches’ and ‘Versatile’ in 2017. In April this year out came ‘You’re Driving Me Crazy’. ‘The Prophet Speaks’ will be available 7 December containing the five albums over two years, two months and one week.

“It was important for me to get back to recording new music as well as doing some of the blues material that has inspired me from the beginning,” Van said about ‘The Prophet Speaks’. “Writing songs and making music is what I do, and working with great musicians makes it all the more enjoyable.”

Morrison has covered blues artists for ‘The Prophet Speaks’ but not the obvious songs. The album features songs by John Lee Hooker, Sam Cooke and Solomon Burke as well as six new Van Morrison compositions.

The musicians are Joey DeFrancesco (the artist co-credited on You’re Driving Me Crazy) and his band (including Dan Wilson on guitar, Michael Ode on drums and Troy Roberts on tenor saxophone).
