    Morrissey's new studio album, I Am Not A Dog On A Chain, is scheduled for March 2020 release by BMG. The album was recorded in St-remy, France, with producer Joe Chiccarelli. The eleven tracks are:

    Jim Jim Falls
    Love Is On Its Way Out
    Bobby, Don't You Think They Know?
    I Am Not A Dog On A Chain
    What Kind Of People Live In These Houses?
    Knockabout World
    Darling, I Hug A Pillow
    Once I Saw The River Clean
    The Truth About Ruth
    The Secret Of Music
    My Hurling Days Are Done

    Morrissey has described I Am Not A Dog On A Chain as:

    " … the very best of me … too good to be true … too true to be considered good … ", and concludes Morrissey's contract with BMG Records.

    The first single is "Bobby, Don't You Think They Know?", which features vocals by Thelma Houston. The B-side is "Rainbow Valley", a cover of the UK hit by The Love Affair.

    BMG will re-issue and re-master several Morrissey albums in 2020, with updated artwork and sleeve notes. These albums are: Southpaw Grammar, Maladjusted, You Are The Quarry, Ringleader Of The Tormentors, Years Of Refusal, Live At The Hollwood Bowl.

    Morrissey has so far achieved 24 Top Ten albums in the UK - 14 solo, 10 with The Smiths. His highest U.S. chart position was this year with "California Son" at number 7.

    The Secret Of Music mystery solved.
    Rainbow Valley appears again.
    Reissues could be promising.
    Is that a Loyd Grossman reference in the tracklist!?

      I can hear him sing it but then again in my head I hear a lot of things.

      I do t think it’s the only good thing he’s done but it is a great album hampered in ways it shouldn’t

      publicity meltdown - & I do over-analyse & over-dramatise, because that's what the media/social media does. That's the business.

      he's in marketing, but it is vaguely similar...

      He said just what I said he said.

      I worry about right-wing diatribes, I even worry he'd do it just because you're not meant to. But, he has never done it before (as someone else pointed out) so fingers crossed.

      Ironically, Amanda Palmer (indie singer), who had to apologise for considering asking Morrissey on to her podcast, is now being buried under a race row on Twitter for singing the n-word in an old song & for having a fight with The Guardian over coverage.

      Last time I saw a vinyl of Southpaw on music stack it was $300. If I'd known it could go for that much I'd never have given away my second copy.

      While it is true that his contract is up, I’m not sure they’re more interested in his older stuff. And who knows, maybe they’ll offer him a new contract? Time will tell.

      Yes but that twat wants him to be dropped from the label. It has nothing to do with actual logic. If they were more interested in his older stuff why give him a contract for three albums? I'd say wanting to rerelease his back catalogue is a sign they want him to re-sign.

      Did you mean re-sign (as in sign up again), or resign?

      Yes, there will always be a place for your sort at the BBC if the royals get sick of you. Jim Jim falls will fix it for you, inbred cretin hoor.

      You could very well be right. Makes a helluva lot more sense than BMG not wanting anything to do with him despite reissuing his back catalogue.

      He was so brilliantly cast. The whole thing was superlative. And such a long time ago :(

      I like it. Sort of an older, wearier 'Viva Hate'. Like someone who can no longer be bothered to get angry.
      It's a lot better than what he's proposing, that's for sure.
