    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 love some of the B-sides more than the released A-sides, they add another dimension & in some cases I've wondered why A was released & B wasn't. All good stuff regardless & luckily we have so much of it to plough through.

      The song titles do not bode well. They are dreadful.

      First time since Maladjusted that a studio album doesn't contain 12 tracks.

      MELTDOWN ? Meltdown was in London. Many years ago at the festival hall. Wonderful days.

      i just hope it's half as good as 'low in high school', a true titan that stands alone in SPM's repertoire. i am wet in anticipation.

      It's difficult to imagine that any album could be so bad as to be only half as good as LIHS.

      I actually like LIHS...took a few plays to appreciate it fully, & the production, but since then, happy days.
      That said, worst track imho is "All the Young People Must Fall in Love".

      It's only the end of I Bury The Living that I really don't like, also I think Israel could have had clearer lyrics since the title alone has got him into so much trouble.

      They are tough. Spectacularly outnumbered, but determined.

      Or is it money and loads of people on the payroll?

      There are snowflakes everywhere and even in Israel. I believe stone throwing palestines have more balls facing an army equipped with all the latest gadgets.

      Not as determined as the entire american military army backing them up.

      Another incredibly stupid comment from you when we all thought you could not go any lower.

      I wasn't referring to their military. But I guess obsessive hatred stops you reading words.

      Israel literally controls American foreign policy. You should stop talking about politics, Karen.

      Back to your old tactics again moving the goal post and dodging questions.

      You and someone else were praising the Israel ability to defend themselves but how easy isn't with the backing of the americans.

      Grow up please.
