He describes the government as “fascist bullies disturbing our peace” – but is criticised for sending a “dangerous” message.
Van Morrison has accused the UK government of trying to “enslave” the population in a series of songs protesting against the coronavirus lockdown.
The Northern Ireland musician described the government as “fascist bullies disturbing our peace” who are “taking our freedom”.
He also claimed that scientists are “making up crooked facts” in a bid to control the public.
Morrison will put out three new tracks in the coming weeks, starting with one called Born To Be Free next week.
It contains the lyrics: “The new normal, is not normal/ It’s no kind of normal at all/ Everyone seems to have amnesia/ Don’t need the government cramping my style/ Give them an inch, they take a mile,” according to The Telegraph.
