From The Icon Himself

Back in 2017, Van Morrison told Uncut that he no longer enjoyed making new albums. But in a recent interview with the same magazine, he said: “I think I started to enjoy it again. I did two albums with Joey [DeFrancesco], working really fast, like the way we used to work in the old days. Well, it wasn’t seen as ‘fast’ in the old days, it was just how it was. I haven’t been used to working that way since the ’60s and early ’70s, but getting back to working that way, I got on a roll and I’m enjoying it more now.”

Morrison released Three Chords & the Truth last October 25. He made two albums back in 2017 and another two in 2018. He’s clearly on a roll. And so he revealed to Uncut, “There is a difference when you are doing it under duress. In the old days I was doing it under duress.”

Talking about his songwriting streak, he admitted: “You know, at first, I was learning. I didn’t just start as a songwriter and know everything. I didn’t know what the hell I was doing for quite a while, I had to work it out and, like anything, I had to evolve. Just like if someone only writes one or two books, they have to go on from there.”
