Roll With The Punches, the Belfast legend's 37th album, sees him simultaneously hand-picking a selection of rhythm 'n' blues classics (by the likes of Bo Diddley, Mose Allison, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Lightnin' Hopkins) and recording a set of new self-written numbers. Raw, intimate reinterpretations of cornerstone cuts like "Goin' To Chicago," "Ride On Josephine" and "Automobile Blues" sit alongside compelling originals "Transformation," "Fame," "Ordinary People" and the titular song co-written with Don Black. Roll With The Punches was produced by Van Morrison and recorded with an incredible team of studio collaborators comprised of Chris FarloweGeorgie FameJeff BeckPaul Jones and Jason Rebello.

Van commented: "From a very early age, I connected with the blues. The thing about the blues is you don't dissect it – you just do it. I've never over-analysed what I do; I just do it. Music has to be about just doing it and that's the way the blues works – it's an attitude. I was lucky to have met people who were the real thing – people like John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Witherspoon, Bo Diddley, Little Walter and Mose Allison. I got to hang out with them and absorb what they did. They were people with no ego whatsoever and they helped me learn a lot.

"The songs on Roll With The Punches – whether I've written them or not – they're performance oriented," he continues. "Each song is like a story and I'm performing that story. That's been forgotten over years because people over-analyse things. I was a performer before I started writing songs and I've always felt like that's what I do."
