    There is no second disc as Amazon first indicated.

    The press release (cut and paste from the Warner's sales portal) doing the rounds with the album details is brief:

    "First new studio album since 2017, I Am Not A Dog On A Chain was recorded at La Fabrique in France in 2018. The eleven track album, which was produced by Joe Chiccarelli, launches officially on the 10th of January 2020 and will be released on Friday 20th March 2020."


    Piccadilly Records now list it too with the same information (and have added It's Over to buy on the 24th too):


    Same via Rough Trade (they, too, have added It's Over 7"):


    Amazon (UK), since last night, now have the CD & black vinyl versions added and listed separately.

    Now for something via superdeluxe and it brings a couple of exclusives too.

    Clear vinyl:
    And an exclusive cassette.
    All found here - this is official and is a portal to buy pretty much everything except the indie red vinyl:


    As linked to here:

    There is an extended bit of press release there and Joe is quoted:

    ‘I Am Not A Dog On A Chain’ was produced by the Grammy Award-winning producer Joe Chicarelli (Beck, The Strokes, The Killers). It was recorded during sessions at Studio La Fabrique in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France and Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California.

    "I have now produced four studio albums for Morrissey,” said Chicarelli. “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!”

    So, to summarise:
    Digital download,
    Black vinyl,
    Mporium w/l 'test pressing' (Limited to 100 copies?),
    Indie only clear red vinyl,
    Website only clear vinyl,
    Website only cassette.

    Apologies for the long post, lots of information happened at the same time.

      100%. A Smiths reunion would be a balls anyway: Marr did his best work with Moz and The The (and a few good Electronic songs). The concert would sell out in a nano second with tickets snapped up by over indulged teenagers looking at their phones and taking selfies.
      I'd much prefer a Moz 'classic Solo' lineup reunion like you said above. Now that would be a fine thing.

      A Smiths reunion is only interesting if they work on new material.

      100%. But I wouldn't expect much from Marr. The best song on 'Call the comet' is 'Hi Hello' which is a blatant rehash of 'There Is A Light'.

      I haven’t listened to the album. I don’t really care for much of his solo work. I have to believe he would write songs differently knowing it is for another artist and not just himself.

      Moz wants to make music, so Le Pew is out for good. He knows but one little strum on the guitar the mediocre dweeb.:straightface:
      if he can get a hold of a couple of phone books Moz could employ him to drive the equipment truck:lbf:

      I ordered the red vinyl version yesterday for 19.99 pounds but in the checkout it was 16.99. Weird.

      That one gig you attended on Refusal tour. Now that was weird. You growling at everyone. Spinning round constantly like. paranoid dog chasing its tail :crazy:

      I wonder why we haven't seen Korda Marshall praising the forthcoming album or Morrissey praising the visionary wisdom of Korda Marshall, a genius among the greedy morons of the record business. Funny that.

      Pirogies are on me, when the good news drops from Central.

      Yeah I couldn't see red on Amzn, hence sent you the Crash link, but I can't find it anywhere at £16.99. Maybe he got lucky?
