    RCA Records will release Van Morrison's brand new album entitled DUETS: RE-WORKING THE CATALOGUE on March 24, 2015. It's Van Morrison's 35th studio album.

    On the album, Van Morrison and the guests selected and recorded some of his songs from the catalog of 360 songs across his career.

    Deliberately steering away from his more well-known classics, Morrison enlisted some of the artists he most respects to perform these songs with him to re-craft and re-imagine them. The album was recorded in his home town of Belfast and London in the United Kingdom over the last year, using a variety of musicians and fresh arrangements.

    So no, there's no "Brown Eyed Girl."

    Track Listing:

    "Some Peace of Mind" with Bobby Womack
    "Lord, If I Ever Needed Someone" with Mavis Staples
