Published Aug 22, 2017Despite causing controversy non-stop (no, really), Morrissey hasn't released a record since 2014's World Peace Is None of Your Business. That's about to change, though, with the arrival of a new LP titled Low in High School. It's set for release on November 17 via BMG.
The upcoming album was produced by Joe Chiccarelli, who previously worked with the singer on Swords and World Peace Is None of Your Business. It was recorded between La Fabrique Studios in south-eastern France and Ennio Morricone's Forum Studios in Rome.
"There are not many artists around today that can compare to Morrissey," BMG exec Korda Marshall said in a statement. "He is an extraordinary talent. He is prodigious, literate, witty, elegant and above all, courageous. His lyrics, humour and melodies have influenced many generations. The music on this new landmark record will speak for itself and we are delighted to welcome him to BMG."
Hopefully, it works out better than his last record deal, with Harvest.
News of the forthcoming full-length also arrives with a live announcement; Morrissey will perform at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on November 10.
Since the release of his 2014 LP, Moz has kept busy by releasing an award-winning work of fiction and planning a 30th anniversary reissue of the Smiths' The Queen Is Dead, not to mention providing the inspiration for a biopic called England Is Mine.
