Van Morrison has released four albums in 15 months, and though that might seem like a fast pace for a 73-year-old, he thinks it's pretty normal.
He tells The New Yorker, “It’s not new. It’s Elvis. It was like this when I started. This is the way jazz and blues artists worked back in the day, the way that country-and-Western artists worked. It was the standard.”
And country might be the next genre Morrison dives into. "It’s a matter of getting people in the same place at the same time, which is difficult to do now. I’ve wanted to do something with Nashville for a while. But people have this tendency that they don’t do live work as much anymore. Lots of people now want to do tracks and send them to people. That doesn’t turn me on.”
