Van Morrison / Roll With The Punches

New album • Expensive signed bundles available

Van Morrison will release Roll With The Punches, his 37th studio album, in September.

The 15-track album contains five new self-penned numbers along with a hand-picked selection of rhythm and blues classics (by the likes of Bo Diddley, Mose Allison, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Lightnin’ Hopkins, among others).

Morrison has produced the new album and collaborated in the studio with some big names, including Chris Farlowe, Georgie Fame, Jeff Beck, Paul Jones and Jason Rebello.

Roll With The Punches will be available on CD and 2LP gatefold vinyl. If you fancy something more ‘deluxe’, then Van’s official store has various special editions and packages, including a £100 bundle which comes with a signed print.

Roll With The Punches will be released on 22 September 2017.

    Too late for The signed Edition … f#%* !

    Looks like all the signed editions were sold out on the first day.

    You aren’t allowed to punch in wrestling unless you are Mick Macmanus and the referee isn’t watching. Van clearly a dirty fighter

    I await the first photoshop parodies – who would you have Van fight? He once had a scrap with Bill Graham and came off the worse.

    • BritinDetroit says:


      You might be doing Mick MacManus an injustice as he was better know for his short forarm stuff as enjoyed by Jackie Pallo and chums

      However, Mick’s famous “not the ears, not the ears” might well apply in the case of this (yet another) covers job

    Definitely a quirky album cover.

    I think him and Dylan are going to the same stock photo website for their album design…

    Still, it’s the music what counts!!

      LOL, that’s right. Van Morrison and Dylan Corp. have become very very lazy in their old days.

      Looks like a self-release out and poorly only 5 new tracks, 15 covers. Dylan releases only cover albums, so Van Morrison leading the way with a few points.

      Definitely passing. For die-hard fan base only. Him too!

    he used be a wrestler of some repute, renowned for his “Van the Man Slam” which invariably caused two black eyes, this was his inspiration for writing brown eyed girl.

  6. truthsayer says:

    Will we still get `The Healing Game` reissue?

  7. Horslips says:

    Do we have a new frontrunner in the 2017 worst album cover competition? That’s not even boxing.

    Steve Winwood can certainly breath a sigh of relief.
