Van Morrison‘s latest studio album, Keep Me Singing, hit stores today. The 13-track collection features 12 original compositions, plus a cover of “Share Your Love with Me,” a song penned by Alfred Baggs and Don Robey that previously was recorded by Aretha Franklin, Kenny Rogers and Bobby “Blue” Bland.
The album’s lead single, “Too Late,” also was released today. You can check out an official video for the soulful tune, featuring Morrison performing with his backing band at Nell’s Jazz and Blues club in London, at Van’s VEVO YouTube channel.
