Please wait..............
Have we seen the full list of who has written what for the album?

I am a bit surprised to see Boz in the mix.

Interesting find. Does that mean Morrissey is signed to BMI? That surely means Bonfire release is just around the corner?
 

This Charming Bowie

Welcome to this knockabout world
Both songs are controlled by Domino Publishing. Is this of any importance?

'Chad Gaylord' - what a name! :ROFLMAO:

This must surely be the first time we've had a song where the music is written by FOUR people? (even two is a relative rarity for Morrissey). I'm wondering if the song grew out of a jam session, or maybe Morrissey has adopted the modern 'songs written by committee' method for this album?

I guess Moz and Boz didn't have a falling out like people were saying
I'm not sure what this has to do with anything. This album was recorded over a year ago when Boz was still very much on board. It's perfectly possible they've fallen out only recently, or had some issue that required Alain's return.

The intervening factors during covid like travel, Lyn's long covid, clearly slowing down/considering retirement coupled with things like this:

Probably better explain anything going on than choosing a single explanation.
Why have his song on the album if circumstances dictate he's no longer welcome?
Given the last 40 years, it's also reasonable to consider there may never be a 'satisfactory' explanation.

Maybe Boz needed a break or there's something going on in his personal life. I don't think his devotion to Moz or contribution to the canon can be called into question. Not saying you said that. Not at all.

Edit: FWD's earlier post about elderly parents needing care explains it I think. Family life can take over very fast when people get frail and need help. One thing goes wrong, then another, and it becomes an exhausting domino effect.

Why do we have to scrape together information off the internet? when Morrissey could just keep us updated.
I know! Like how Robert Smith talks about the new Cure album at the NME Awards but rarely (never) provides a worthwhile update on his official site. An update from Suede on their new album would also be great. Sometimes I think checking Amazon for album releases is often the way fans first find out, which is bizarre.
