Van Morrison has premiered a lyric video for a brand new song “Got to Go Where the Love Is.” The track is the latest release from the six-time Grammy winner's upcoming studio album The Prophet Speaks, which drops Dec. 7 via Caroline International.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer unveiled the self-penned song on Oct. 25 via Facebook ahead of a big headline appearance on Oct. 26 in London at The O2 at BluesFest Presents. “Got to Go Where the Love Is” is the second song to surface from the Belfast Belter's highly anticipated 40th solo effort, following the release of the album's title track earlier this month.
The breezy R&B flavored track opens with an acoustic bass riff as a series of musical instruments and musical notes flash across the screen in neon. Electric keyboards and a horn section are added to the groove as Van The Man launches into the first verse, singing, “Sent to Coventry/Feels like hell/This ain't no place to get well.”
The Prophet Speaks is Morrison's latest collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Joey DeFrancesco and features a combination of 14 original and cover songs. The album is available for preorder here in a variety in CD, digital and vinyl formats. Fans can check out the lyric video above.
The "Brown Eyed Girl" hitmaker has one more BluesFest date, scheduled for Oct. 28 in Dublin at 3Arena before heading to the U.S. for a two-night stand between Nov. 14 – Nov. 15 in Oakland, CA, at Fox Theatre. The multi-platinum seller will begin a 2019 winter residency in Sin City, which will take place between Jan. 25 through Feb. 3 in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
