Van Morrison - "Irish Heartbeat" (Feat. Mark Knopfler)

With 34 albums under his belt, Van Morrison is taking a step and looking at his long career on his next full-length, Duets, which will feature duets of some of his old songs recorded with the friends and colleagues he’s made over the years. We’ve already heard him team up with Michael BublĂ© and the late Bobby Womack, and now he’s shared his duet with Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits. The two previously worked together on a song called “The Last Laugh” for Knopfler’s 2000 album Sailing To Philadelphia. They take on “Irish Heartbeat,” a track that was originally included on the 1983 album Inarticulate Speech Of The Heart, found new life a few years later on the Irish Heartbeat record, and once again gets an update here. Listen below.

Duets: Re-working The Catalogue is out 3/16 in the UK and 3/24 in the US via RCA.
