    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


    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!"

      Seems like a lot of people are not liking the length or the song. It doesn't bother me too much , but it's obvious t'was recorded under the same spell of California son and that's kinda meh.
      I only hope this is not the real album cover that would be extremely disappointing.

      it’s so frustrating, isn’t it. For me personally one of the reasons I’m so interested and concerned about the Artwork is because of what Morrissey himself did with the Smiths Artwork. Where has that gone.

      Thelma takes an important role in the song making it that more special.

      But can it really be called a duet ?

      More like call and response.

      noting or pertaining to a style of singing in which a melody sung by one singer is responded to or echoed by one or more singers.‘


      Guess it’s just easier to call it a duet. Understandable.

      In a gentle way, get a grip P&O you old scrote...move on...it's not the 80's/90's anymore.
      The world, & Moz, have moved on since V&I, & VH...Moz, at 60, continues to develop musically & deliver greatness while scrotes like yourself are stuck in your wheelchair in a time capsule.

      My first thoughts on the organ were Deep Purple, but yes, maybe The Doors.
      The sax was very cool back in the day, & still is, & very nicely done too.
      TH does a great job on vocals, as does the Mozmeister. :cool:

      I think this is an album version, not a single, it's too long as others have commented...the intro seems to be a Joe Chiccarelli trade mark, like one of the tracks on LIHS, or was it WPINOYB?
      For it to be a single, the intro would need to get cut, & some of the musical interludes reduced.

      Agreed! Zero creativity went into it. Just look at it and compare it to the deluxe version of Low In High School.

      So true. I’m hoping that the record will be so awful to them that they will FINALLY move on and stop visiting the site dedicated to an artist that they dislike.

      I put Bobby on loop and it just gets better and better!

      VIVA MOZ !!!

      In a Morrissey context, anyone not mixed quietly in to the back ground and given equal volume in the mix is probably a duet :)

      Well, in that case... ‘Interlude’ is also duet. no?

      I always think of duets as a conversation between two vocalists. Like some of the
      Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood songs.

      Been thinking the same. Someone on here posted the single collection of Low In High School. The labels on those records were great. So why don't the covers reflect the same level of artwork? That is apart from the deluxe version of LIHS, which is one of Morrissey's best.
