Exile/CarolineIn advance of the September 22 arrival of Van Morrison‘s latest album, Roll with the Punches, the legendary singer/songwriter has released the record’s first single, “Transformation.” The track can be purchased now as a digital download at iTunes and also is available via major streaming services.

The soulful song features the talents of such respected U.K. musicians as Jeff Beck, jazz pianist Jason Rebello and rock-blues singer — and frequent Morrison collaborator — Chris Farlowe.

An official video for “Transformation,” featuring Morrison and his backing group performing the tune live at a concert at Porchester Hall in London, has premiered at Van’s VEVO channel.

“Transformation” is one of several new original tunes that appear on Roll with the Punches, which also features various cover versions of songs by blues, R&B and early rock ‘n’ roll artists who’ve influenced Morrison. They include Bo Diddley, Sam Cooke, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Mose Allison and Little Walter.

In support of the album, Morrison has lined up a variety of U.S. concerts, starting with a previously announced appearance at Willie Nelson‘s Outlaw Music Festival Tour stop in Hershey, Pennsylvania, on September 10.
