Hot off the heels of a duet with Bobby Womack is a new track from Van Morrison featuring Dire Straits’ Mark Knopfler. Van Morrison has recently been gearing up to release his new album, Duets: Re-Working the Catalogue. The record is slated to be released on March 23rd and is sure to satisfy both casual Van Morrison fans and die-hards alike.
The album is certain to impress, boasting a star-studded lineup which includes Steve Winwood, Taj Mahal, George Benson and many more classic artists. Morrison will not merely be rehashing the past, but instead giving a fresh twist on many of the lesser-known songs in his extensive catalogue. This includes both “Lord, If I Needed Someone” as well as “Irish Heartbeat,” which was original on his 1983 release Inarticulate Speech of the Heart. You can pre-order the record here.
