Morrissey – Low In High-School

MARVELOUS Manc miseribilist Morrissey is set to release his first studio album since 2014's World Peace Is None Of Your Business.

Low In High-School is due out on November 17 on Mozza's new BMG Records sponsored label, Etienne Records.

According to the official press release, Low In High-School was recorded between La Fabrique Studios in southern France and Ennio Morricone's Forum Studios in Rome and represents Morrissey's attempt at capturing "the zeitgeist of an ever-changing world".

Noted music industry rebel and BMG bigwig Korda Marshall declares: "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."

Of course, even that kind of high praise is no guarantee that Mozza won't simply fire everyone and disappear into the ether prior to actually releasing the record – though he is currently booked to play at LA's famous Hollywood Bowl on November 10, just prior to it coming out.

No other live dates, Irish or otherwise, have been announced.
