      Boy Racer is one of his better songs from that era . Along with this

      Look at the way he messes up the balls on the pool table the couple are playing on in this video. That kind of thing gives Moz a frisson. He does this to the press all the time - and walks away with a wry smile.

      Do you always speak of yourself in the third person?
      I'm sure you have some redeeming qualities, like compassion and emotional intelligence?

      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 BMGRecords.

      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.

      How doomed is this album without BMG pushing it? They are not going to aggressively market a product from an artist who is no longer on their roster and the reissues are probably part of the severance deal.

      Heard it on Dutch radio, they had made it 'single of the week'...was realy suprised.

      Well, the single was a #36 smash in the UK -- and it concluded his deal with RCA.

      I love that song & my name gets in it - albeit as an insult.

      I'm still not convinced he's happy with the mess he's creating right now though. Apart from one smirk in the video for Spent The Day In Bed, he looks stressed.

      Funnily enough the co-founder of Extinction Rebellion (a crustie) is currently getting monstered for eco-fascism because XR is getting flack for being mostly white & middle-class. I never liked them, but I like them even less for throwing him under the bus.

      Yere, i read. Lot of loony toons involved in that.

      I remember seeing this performance and thinking at the time that the suit jacket and pants look seemed new, and that the crowd basically sat/stood there lifeless. say what you want to about the song itself, but the band rocked the sh*t out of it! True musicianship on full display.

      I love Southpaw, but Boy Racer isn't exactly one of the highlights of the album. This is the first time I've ever seen it referred to as "iconic".
