Thirty-three Van Morrison albums will be released digitally and available on all streaming services this Friday, August 28. The albums are being made available via Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, who recently acquired the bulk of Morrison’s catalog. Legacy will also release a 37-track career-spanning anthology that day as a digital offering and as a 2CD physical album.

“Van Morrison is one of the great singers, performers and musical artists in the history of recorded music,” Adam Block, president of Legacy Recordings, said in a press statement. “He continues to touch the hearts and souls of millions with the emotional power and spiritual truths of his songs. Legacy Recordings is proud to partner with Van to help him protect and curate his astounding catalog and to be given the opportunity to bring his music to whole new generations of fans around the world.”

Morrison’s recording with the band Them will be available on Legacy later in the year.
