‘ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES’–Van Morrison’s 37th studio album out this September 22!


Who doesn’t get emotional with any Van Morrison song? He’s the ultimate blues man who enchants  mainstream fans with his voice and guitar playing. Bring It On Home To Me is the first single off the new album Roll With the Punches. It’s a compelling track that showcases Morrison’s amazing range both as an instrumentalist and vocalist. “Bring It on Home to Me” is a song originally recorded by soul singer Sam Cooke, released on May 8, 1962.  Music like this is refreshing due to its raw nature. It’s like finding a vinyl record in the seas of digital music.

Roll With the Punches also happens to be his 37th studio album. He simultaneously hand-picked a selection of rhythm and blues classics (by the likes of Bo Diddley, Mose Allison, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Lightnin’ Hopkins, among others) on top of new self-written songs. According to his press release, it’s an album that features raw, intimate interpretations of some of the cornerstones of Rhythm & Blues alongside five new numbers by one of our most consistently brilliant recording artists.  A pre-order of the album is available now.
