Van Morrison Duets With Willie Nelson On Dusted Off Songs

Lately Van Morrison has apparently been bent on oversaturating the market with his output. Less than a year after the release of “Accentuate The Positive” – his latest studio album – and the recent announcement of the August issue of his 2014 concert document, the veteran delved into his archives to come up with fifteen numbers from the not-too-distant past. Set to see the light of day on September 13th, his new collection “New Arrangements And Duets” features, as its title suggests, different takes on such latter-day gems as “The Beauty Of The Days Gone By” and shared-microphone versions of “What’s Wrong With This Picture” and the Irishman’s other cuts.

These hail from various sessions – the big band tracks from 2014, Van’s duets with Joss Stone and Curtis Stigers from 2018, those with Kurt Elling and Willie Nelson from 2018 and 2019 – and that’s only a small part of what Morrison’s planning to flood the aficionados’ shelves with in the near future. Interesting if hardly essential.
