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 more jazz-influenced, sprawling and lyrically demanding.
Read more about the album here and check out our Astral Weeks Musical Lead-Up playlist here and our Astral Weeks Legacy playlist here.
Join us at one of our album listening sessions around the world to experience Astral Weeks in a way you never have before.
