"Bobby, Don't You Think They Know?" release (Jan. 10, 2020); album sleeve revealed?

Some people reporting 'Bobby Don't You Think They Know' is on YouTube now, which would be the first from the forthcoming album.
I was sent this link:
But it isn't working for me. Got 9 views though.
E: Looks like the release date is 10/01/2020, as Anonymous suggested, which is why it is currently available in Australia.




UPDATE Jan. 10:

Morrissey drops duet with Motown star Thelma Houston - The List

Excerpt:

Morrissey recruited Grammy-winning Motown star Thelma Houston for the epic duet, who said: "One of the biggest joys for me in this business is getting the opportunity to collaborate with other top artists.

"I love the challenge to see if what I do can work with what they're doing. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.

"I think the blend of what Morrissey is singing and what I'm singing really works on 'Bobby'.

"And it was a lot of fun working with M in the studio too!"

The 'Mute Witness' singer's long-time producer, Joe Chicarelli, has teased that the upcoming LP, which is released via BMG on March 20, is "the boldest and most adventurous" record ever recorded by Morrissey.

He added: "I have now produced four studio albums for Morrissey.

"This is his boldest and most adventurous album yet.

"He has pushed the boundaries yet again – both musically and lyrically.

"And once again proving that as a songwriter and singer, he is in his own category. In truth, no one can be Morrissey but ... Morrissey!"

Initial thoughts, FWD?
I like it - her voice is very powerful.
It does sound very much like the musicality of the Italy sessions with, obviously, her vocals added at Sunset.
The setup in France appears similar to Italy judging by sound/crew.
The keyboard came from left field, but Boz on sax is good to hear again.
Regards,
FWD.

Personally - I don't have anything against long songs, but I'm not sure there are enough different lines/verses to justify the length really.

I’m enjoying it more with each listen. I originally thought the instrumental went on a bit too long but it’s really growing on me. I imagine there will be an edited version if this is the first single though.

No idea. That site is run pretty shoddily. It may as well not exist. Unless you like seeing images of Morrissey product photoshat into pics of dead famous people.

A (now) totally americanized Mancunian, thinks some 60s Doors organ and early 70s Roxy Music sax + a Soul Diva are enough to demonstrate he is still creative and relevant (without a real song). Bloody bloody awful. Thank you but NO.

Moz is the reason
The song was just OK. I hope the whole album is not like this or i will be crying in the corner of my bedroom.

I wish He could at least do one song like "You Are The Quarry" days, Just one.

Oh well.

Objectively speaking, this is GOOD. Weird and sexy.

Steve's record people better not f*** this up and do what they can to market this as weird and sexy.

Ok, back on Clapton's charter I go.

Lyrics (from what I can tell, song is about someone in the closet?):


Ice snow, spikes blow, bobby don’t you think they know?

bobby don’t you think they know?

Aren’t you tired of pretending?

I know, your torture below


Aren’t you tired of pretending? (duet)

I know, your torture down below (duet)

Scag a shack, Mexican mud, little jo in the snow

Bobby don’t you think they know?

Bobby don’t you think they know?


Aren’t you tired of pretending? (duet)

I know, your torture down below (duet)


But, ah the pleasure you bring for us

Ah whenever you sing for us

Ah the pleasure you bring for us

Ah whenever you sing for us

Ah the pleasure you bring for us

Ah whenever you sing for us

Ah the pleasure you bring for us


Eighth track, A-bomb, white mosquito

Of course they know

Thelma: you ain’t fooling nobody

Snow king, toot-and-horse, then something worse

Bobby don’t you think they know?

Thelma: don’t you think they know, Bobby?

Oh, Bobby don’t you think they know?


But, ah the pleasure you bring for us

Ah whenever you sing for us

Ah the pleasure you bring for us

Ah whenever you sing for us

Ah the pleasure you bring for us

Ah whenever you sing for us

Ah the pleasure you bring for us


Thelma: everybody knows

Thelma: you ain’t fooling nobody

Thelma: lord have mercy for the man



Ice snow, spikes blob

Oh, Bobby don’t you think they know?

Oh, don’t you think they know


I know, your torture down below (duet)

Scag a shack, Mexican mud, little jo in the snow

Bobby don’t you think they know?

Bobby don’t you think they know?

Of course they know.


Thelma: you cant hide it,
Bobby
