Van Morrison has announced that he will be releasing his brand new studio album "Roll With The Punches" on September 22nd which will be a mix of original material and his take on some classic rhythm and blues songs.

The music legend self-produced the effort which he recorded with a team of studio collaborators that included Chris Farlowe, Georgie Fame, Jeff Beck, Paul Jones and Jason Rebello.

Van Morrison had this to say, "From a very early age, I connected with the blues. The thing about the blues is you don't dissect it--you just do it. I've never over-analysed what I do; I just do it. Music has to be about just doing it and that's the way the blues works--it's an attitude.

"I was lucky to have met people who were the real thing--people like John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Witherspoon, Bo Diddley, Little Walter & Mose Allison. I got to hang out with them and absorb what they did. They were people with no ego whatsoever and they helped me learn a lot."

He added, "The songs on Roll With The Punches--whether I've written them or not--they're performance oriented. Each song is like a story and I'm performing that story. That's been forgotten over years because people over-analyse things. I was a performer before I started writing songs and I've always felt like that's what I do."
