Morrissey has announced a new record and an album launch show in Hollywood.
The new album is the first offering from The Smiths frontman since 2014’s World Peace Is None Of Your Business. The singer recently parted ways with record label Harvest having claimed that “working with them almost killed him.”
The iconic singer has now signed to BMG and his forthcoming 11th album, Low In High-School, is set for release in November of this year. The record was recorded at the French La Fabrique Studios and was produced by the Frank Zappa, The Strokes, Beck, and The White Stripes affiliate, Joe Chiccarelli.
Speaking about the artist, Korda Marshall, the EVP of BMG has stated: “There are not many artists around today that can compare to Morrissey. He is an extraordinary talent. He is prodigious, literate, witty, elegant and above all, courageous. His lyrics, humour and melodies have influenced many generations.”
He continued: “The music on this new landmark record will speak for itself and we are delighted to welcome him to BMG.”
Morrissey will be promoting the “landmark record” with a show at the Hollywood Bowl on 10th November.
