Morrissey Central “BONFIRE DOUSED” (February 7, 2023)


Morrissey is ‘too diverse’ for Universal Music Group.
Capitol Records (Los Angeles) will not, after all, release Morrissey’s 2021 album ‘Bonfire of Teenagers’. At the same time, Capitol Records (Los Angeles) are holding on to the album.

Although Morrissey officially signed to Capitol Records Los Angeles, there has been no mention of Morrissey on Capitol’s website or on their Artists roster.

Morrissey has said that although he does not believe that Capitol Records in Los Angeles signed ‘Bonfire of Teenagers’ in order to sabotage it, he is quickly coming around to that belief.

He prefers the big labels... and then pays the consequences.
Moz has said a few times why he prefers to remain with a big label, I do think he has a dated understanding of smaller labels however.

Shock horror a smaller label with a smaller roster might show Bonfire greater attention and the promo might be far better.

Dog was released on BMG but received no promotion, no music videos, no TV or radio. Which is strange as BMG were very good to him for Low In highschool which even got a deluxe version, the California Son album with great vinyl singles, music videos, TV, radio and all that. The promotion for Low in Highschool was solid. But he couldn't resist by messing up the release with the bbc6 set and his comments and then De Spiegel. Even so, it still did well.
