Van Morrison has announced details of a new album entitled Three Chords And The Truth. The record will be released on Exile/Caroline International available on CD/vinyl and digital download on 25 October 2019.

Three Chords And The Truth features fourteen new original compositions which encapsulate the Van Morrison sound and showcase his talents as one of our generation’s most celebrated songwriters. His sixth album in just four years, Three Chords And The Truth offers further proof that Van Morrison is one of the greatest recording artists of all time and still very much a creative force to be reckoned with.

Three Chords And The Truth was produced and written by Van Morrison, except for If We Wait for Mountains which was co-written with Don Black. The album features contributions from legendary guitarist Jay Berliner and a duet with The Righteous Brothers’ Bill Medley on ‘Fame Will Eat the Soul.’ You can hear the first track from the album, ‘Dark Night Of The Soul’ below.

Explaining what it was like to record the album, Van Morrison said: “You’re just plugging into the feeling of it, more the feeling of it… when they’re playing… It’s like reading me. So, I think there’s more of that connection.”

    I thought on this latest CD album by Van Morrison he had done a song together with P.J.Proby for this album. Strange….but I cannot see which song of the 14 it is. OR maybe for some reason the track I’m looking for is not included?

    I was a bit surprised to see the title of Van Morrison’s new album as it is called the same as a wonderful B.B.C. documentary with Billy Bragg shown in April this year about Woody Guthrie called Three Cords And The Truth .
