Moz is back!
Alt-rock’s most legendarily cranky singer has announced a new album after a three-year absence. Morrissey is set to release Low In High-School on November 17. A week earlier, he’ll take the stage at the Hollywood Bowl for a sort of album release show on November 10.
The new album finds Morrissey now on the BMG label. Shortly after he released World Pease Is None Of Your Business in 2014 on Harvest Records, he was outspoken about how he felt the label neglected the album’s promotional campaign. Less than a month after its release, the album was discontinued, and Morrissey and Harvest parted ways. The album has been out of print in the US ever since, though it is easily available on UK import. The fact that the album was dropped so soon after its release is even more surprising considering the fact that there was a retail exclusive deluxe edition at Best Buy stores. That version has since become somewhat of a collector’s item.
There’s no cover art or track list announcement yet, nor any hints about possible deluxe editions. Meanwhile, Morrissey does appear to be in a positive mood when it comes to the upcoming deluxe edition of The Smiths classic album, The Queen Is Dead. That is scheduled for release on October 20, and can be pre-ordered here.
