This fall, Morrissey will return his first album in three years. It’s titled, Low in High-School, and slated to hit shelves November 17th via BMG and his own Etienne label.
The forthcoming effort follows 2014’s World Peace is None of Your Business and is Moz’s 10th solo LP overall. It was produced by Joe Chiccarelli, a Grammy-winning studio veteran known for his work with The White Stripes, Broken Social Scene, and Spoon. Recording took place at La Fabrique Studios in France as well as in Rome at the Ennio Morricone-affiliated Forum Studios.
“Morrissey’s talent for combining political statements and beautiful melodies is more prevalent than ever on Low in High-School,” reads a press release, “capturing the zeitgeist of an ever-changing world.”
