Roll With The Punches is the name of Van Morrison's 37th studio album, set for release this September. It comes almost a year after his previous effort Keep Me Singing. September 22nd is the scheduled arrival, with the album featuring 15 songs - a mix of original songs and covers of classic blues numbers.

“From a very early age, I connected with the blues,” Morrison explains in his press release. “The thing about the blues is you don’t dissect it — you just do it. I’ve never over-analyzed 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 and 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.”

Morrison has announced a tour the US and UK starting in September and continuing until early December. Check out a preview of 'Bring It On Home To Me' and the track list of the album below.
