With Morrissey and the boys having around six months off since they came off the road, there's a strong chance that Boz has written some new songs. Songs from last years tour like "Art Hounds", "People Are The Same Everywhere" and "Scandinavia" might become regular songs in the set list. Unlikely as it seems, some might be consigned to having an entry in the next reprint of Mozpedia along with the note, "never recorded".
Are we all getting excited thinking that there will be lots of new songs emerging slowly as the tour progresses. Or we'll be lucky only to get two or three new ones? My feeling is that we can by the end of the tour see around seven or eight new songs. Enough for a short album, running in at 35 minutes.
This tour is going to see Morrissey much more happier than last year. He's certainly being treated like a celebrity already in Chile. He's going to love this attention and devotion. Much better than the sour after taste of some of last year's tour incidents.
