Watt's involvement with Bonfire Of Teenagers was initially suggested by Chad Smith during his Percussion Discussion interview (February 2021).
Morrissey then alluded to him via his interview "Turning The Inside Out." (July, 2021):

Speaking about Andrew Watt, Eddie Vedder tells: “He was working on the Morrissey record, some of the best Morrissey stuff I’d heard in years, so I was curious to see his studio. He was working a lot with Chad Smith and Josh Klinghoffer, getting great sounding results.
