Van Morrison returns to Blue Note Records for a new studio album, Born To Sing: No Plan B, to be released October 2. Morrison released the Grammy-nominated What's Wrong With This Picture? on Blue Note in 2003.
Van says: "With most record companies being so corporate I am happy to be working with Don Was and the team at Blue Note. To have such a creative music person as the head of my recording label assures me that all the effort taken to write and record this new album will be rewarded with a music-based focus and marketing approach. I look forward to many recording projects with Don and Blue Note."
Don Was adds: "Over a career that spans decades, Van Morrison has developed a body of work that is unparalleled in its consistent excellence. He is one of the greatest singer/songwriter/musicians of all time. We are incredibly honored that he has chosen to record for the Blue Note label and look forward to many fruitful years together."
'Born To Sing: No Plan B' was produced by Van and recorded in his native Belfast.
