Van Morrison will team up with a cavalcade of stars for his next LP, including Natalie Cole, Joss Stone and Michael Bublé.
He explained that he played “Crazy Love” for his wife (who was sitting in the front row with their children) at their engagement party, and then thanked his mother-in-law — who was hanging out at side stage — for allowing him to marry her daughter. Later on in the show, he covered another mellow classic from the same year, Cat Stevens’ “Trouble” — another far cry from the harder songs Cornell used to cover and name-check.
Last year saw the quiet release of Van Morrison’s 34th album, Born To Sing: No Plan B. One of the reasons that it didn’t get a lot of press was that Van historically isn’t fond of doings interviews or promotion.
