Singer-songwriter Morrissey, a former lead singer of the English band The Smiths , first laid out details of their new album, which will be released in March 2019.

In an interview with Folha , the British said that the album will be called "California Son" and will bring twelve songs written by a collection of American composers.

The album was produced by Joe Chicarelli - who has worked with names like The Strokes, U2 and Elton John - and recorded at the famous Sunset Sound studio in Los Angeles. "Joe brought in a lot of new musicians and we experimented with a lot of sounds. Everything went fantastically well and we are proud, "said the singer.
The album will feature the participation of singer Laura Pergolizzi, better known as LP, in two tracks. She has written songs for Rihanna and Christina Aguilera.

In April of this year, Morrissey announced on its website that it had completed recordings of a new single, also at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles.

It's "Back on the Chain Gang," written by Chrissie Hynde and recorded by The Pretenders in 1982. The song, which has been played live by Morrissey since 2017, is likely to be part of the new album.

Moz couldn't be bothered to write new material for this.
Next up will be either an album of Christmas classics or Motown classics...
Don't judge it too harshly without hearing it. I'm dubious too but we could be surprised. Maybe playing with other musicians will help Moz realise it's past time for a change of 'personnel'. I doubt it. Definitely one for Spotify before I commit to actually spending money on an album of cover versions.
Here's hoping for a new Cure album in 2019. Of new songs.

We've known it's a covers album for months. I feel like his writing well was getting a bit dry, as @ACTON said this may end up being a good thing all around.

There are quite a few artists that have done an American songbook style album.
It's hardly an indication of some kind of terminal writer's block. It will suit some narratives here, but I'm up for something different. Plus not forgetting a few 'new' tracks when (or if) a LIHS deluxe appears at the end of the year.

Do we know if the usual players were used? Boz, Mando, etc?
