Originally a standout track on Van Morrison‘s classic 1970 album Moondance, “These Dreams Of You” has now been covered by singer/songwriter Jesse Colin Young — he of the Youngbloods and his own versatile solo career.

Young debuted a video for his cover of the track on Friday:

“These Dreams of You’ is a tongue in cheek look at relationships gone really wrong, and I couldn’t resist a good shuffle,” said Young in a statement.

Young has been keeping busy the past year, even despite the pandemic. In November 2020, he released Highway Troubadour, a new collection of reimagined songs from throughout his vaunted career.

“Highway Troubadour is not only a return to my roots, but the beginning of a surprise adventure of solo performing,” said Young about the album’s release. “I have begun to take guitar playing to a whole new level while revisiting my decades of musical catalogue.”

As for immediate upcoming plans, this weekend (Aug. 21-22), Young has two special gigs lined up. Per a news release:

In support of this release, Jesse Colin Young is set to perform tomorrow, August 21 alongside Steve Miller at the Never Forget Concert at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY which will benefit the Tunnels to Towers Foundation. Honoring the 20th Anniversary of the September 11 attacks, the event will also feature Journey, John Fogerty, Ann Wilson, and many more.
