Morrissey to release new album next year, tour like crazy
He may have turned down a jillion dollar offer to reunite the Smiths, and he may have overreacted by kicking off a supporting act for making a joke compliment about his head-giving abilities. But if there’s one thing to be happy about, it’s that he sure as shit isn’t satisfied to sit around and practice his thumb twiddling as his temples get a little bit grayer every day. Morrissey has plans to release a new album in 2008, according to Billboard, as his seemingly neverending tour of “Ringleader of the Tormentors” winds down.
Moz’s manager told Billboard that the perennial sad sack is slated to team up again with producer Jerry Finn (”You Are the Quarry”) for a new studio album. Morrissey also plans to release a greatest hits collection (gawd, he loves doing this), which will include two new songs. And after a break for a few months, the singer plans to get back out on the road beginning in January.
