Morrissey has introduced the recording of a brand new album known as ‘With out Music The World Dies’.
The soloist and former The Smiths singer confirmed plans to report his fifteenth album between January and February subsequent yr.
‘Bonfire Of Youngsters’, in the meantime, is anticipated to launch in spring 2023. It was initially scheduled for launch in February but has since been held with no further details, with the singer citing decisions held “exclusively in the hands of Capitol Records (Los Angeles)”.
A brand new message posted to Morrissey’s website about ‘With out Music The World Dies’ reads: “Studio time is booked for January and February 2023 when Morrissey will report his new album WITHOUT MUSIC THE WORLD DIES.
“The recording would be the fifth Morrissey album produced by ten Grammy winner Joe Chiccarelli, and the band continues to be Jesse Tobias, Gustavo Manzur, Alain Whyte, Juan Galeano and Brendan Buckley. The 12 songs had been written by Morrissey with Alain Whyte, Jesse Tobias, Gustavo Manzur. There is no such thing as a report label as but for the venture, and methods to achieve international distribution are being researched.”
Morrissey himself commented: “The songs, in fact, are magnificent, and even the relentless difficulties we’ve got skilled lately usually are not sufficient to kill us off.”
Morrissey confirmed that he doesn’t at the moment have a report deal when he introduced ‘Bonfire Of Youngsters’ in 2021: “Morrissey is unsigned. The album is offered to the very best (or lowest) bidder.” Mentioned bidder seemed to be Capitol for the album’s US launch, whereas a UK launch stays to be confirmed.
He added on the time of the report’s announcement: “The worst year of my life concludes with the best album of my life.” The album is the follow-up to 2020’s ‘I Am Not A Canine On A Chain’.
In different information, Morrissey recently shared his views on the conversation around “diversity” in the arts and wider culture.
When Morrissey was speaking about “dumbing down” of tradition within the UK throughout his first on-camera interview since 2015 – together with the “unbearable” content material on British TV adverts – he went on to assert that “not many individuals place confidence in music anymore”.
The singer continued, saying that “cold” report labels now generally tend to drop new acts that don’t generate near-instant success. He added that previously labels allowed artists to have a number of “flops” earlier than deciding to chop ties.
“They [record label heads] speak all about, ‘Oh we should have variety, variety, variety,’ which is variety of individuals that you just don’t know,” Morrissey mentioned. “And it simply means – it’s simply one other phrase for conformity. It’s the brand new method of claiming conformity, variety. You don’t see something various anyway, it’s all conformity.”
