Music legend Van Morrison says he has recorded three "protest songs" against the UK government's coronavirus lockdown measures, in which he reportedly accuses scientists of "making up crooked facts," reports the AFP News Agency.
He will release the new tracks -- named "Born To Be Free", "As I Walked Out", and "No More Lockdown" -- at two-week intervals from September 25.
"Morrison makes it clear in his new songs how unhappy he is with the way the government has taken away personal freedoms," a statement said on his website announcing the releases.
In one of the trio of records, the musician sings: "No more government overreach / No more fascist bullies / Disturbing our peace."
In another, he sings: "No more taking of our freedom / And our God given rights / Pretending it's for our safety / When it's really to enslave."
Born To Be Free will be released on Friday September 25
As I Walked Out will be released on Friday October 9
No More Lockdown will be released on Friday October 23
