Van Morrison delivers a spirited performance of “Too Late” in the new video for the latest single off his upcoming record, Keep Me Singing.
Directed by Dick Carruthers, the clip finds Morrison onstage at Nell’s Jazz and Blues club in London, breezing through the snappy soul cut and unleashing a polished saxophone solo. Morrison’s vocals remain silky, though he uncovers a delightful gruffness buried in his throat as he saunters through the final chorus.
Keep Me Singing marks Morrison’s 36th studio album and is scheduled to arrive September 30th. Morrison produced the LP, which comprises 12 original tracks — one of which, “Every Time I See A River,” was a collaboration with famed lyricist Don Black — and a cover of the blues standard, “Share Your Love With Me.”
Morrison will also play a handful of live dates this fall in support of Keep Me Singing, starting October 9th at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, New York. He’ll return to the U.S. next January for gigs in Las Vegas and Florida as well.
