AceShowbiz - Morrissey is auctioning off his new album to the highest bidding label, a year after he was dropped by BMG amid a storm about his politics.
The "Everyday Is Like Sunday" hitmaker caused a storm of protest by appearing to support far right wing politics in the U.K. and the drama cost him his deal, but now he's bouncing back, announcing the track listing for "Bonfire of Teenagers" via his website, Morrissey Central.
"The worst year of my life concludes with the best album of my life," the singer writes.
The 11-track album will be Morrissey's follow-up to "I Am Not a Dog on a Chain". No release date has been set.
Last November, Morrissey responded to being dropped by BMG in a note on his website, stating, "This news is perfectly in keeping with the relentless galvanic horror of 2020. We would be critically insane to expect anything positive."
"My three albums with BMG have been the best of my career, and I stand by them till death. Recording them has been a pivotal period in my life, and I thank the previous BMG team and everyone involved for that. It's still important to me to do music my own way, and I wouldn't want to be on a label that dictates so specifically how their artists should behave."
Morrissey's new album announcement came around two months after A$AP Rocky claimed that the former The Smiths frontman has "been writing, producing, and contributing vocals" to his upcoming album "All Smiles". To GQ magazine, the rapper spilled, "Anything you need him to do, he show up and do."
