We’re starting off 2017 in style with the incredible Astral Weeks by Van Morrison.
The songs on Astral Weeks were a far cry from the blissful pop of the hit single “Brown Eyed Girl,” which had been released the previous year. Astral Weeks was spare, sprawling and lyrically demanding. Still, to hear Morrison tell it, the final outcome wasn’t necessarily the result of some inspired vision.
“I wanted to do it around the singing, and it had to be kind of jazzy, because that’s the way I’m singing it,” Morrison says (NPR 2009).
