Morrissey fans will be delighted to hear that the former Smiths front-man has signed a new record deal. The deal will see Morrissey release his 11th studio album called ‘Low In High-School’ later on this year.
Fans have beeen waiting for this since 2014, the last time Morrissey released a record – ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business’. The singer left music label ‘Harvest’ after the album’s release, saying that ‘working with them almost killed him’.
But now that he’s signed a new record deal with BMG, he’s back with a new release this November! ‘Low In High-School’ was recorded in Rome at Ennio Morricone’s Forum Studios and also in France at La Fabrique Studios. It was produced by Joe Chiccarelli, the man favoured by The Strokes, Beck, The White Stripes and Frank Zappa.
Korda Marshall, EVP of BMG said the following about Morrissey’s arrival at the label: “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.”
“The music on this new landmark record will speak for itself and we are delighted to welcome him to BMG.”
