Van Morrison, 'Keep Me Singing'

At 71, Van Morrison says he makes records to please one person: himself. “If it’s not interesting, then I don’t do it,” he says. His first LP of new songs in four years includes a swing instrumental, a tribute to hero Bobby “Blue” Bland, who died in 2013, and “Too Late,” a doo-wop tune about making the most of one’s limited time (“It’s too late to start over again/Can’t complain,” Morrison howls). It’s the perfect mission statement of a rock star in twilight, though the song was written years ago. “I came across it in a notebook and thought, ‘What happened to this one?'” he says.

After spending the past few years revisiting and reissuing his storied catalog, Van Morrison will release Keep Me Singing”, his first collection of new music in four years, this September.
