Morrissey has announced the release of a new album called I Am Not a Dog on a Chain. It’s due out in March 2020 via BMG.
I Am Not a Dog on a Chain marks Moz’s 13th solo album to date. The 11-track effort collects his first original material since 2017’s Low in High School. Earlier this year, he released the covers album California Son.
In a statement provided to the website Morrissey Central, the singer described his upcoming album as “the very best of me … too good to be true … too true to be considered good …”
The first single, “Bobby, Don’t You Think They Know?”, features vocals by Thelma Houston. Its B-side, “Rainbow Valley”, is a cover of the UK hit by The Love Affair.
To coincide with the album’s release, BMG will reissue several of Morrissey’s past solo albums, including Southpaw Grammar, Maladjusted, You Are The Quarry, Ringleader Of The Tormentors, Years Of Refusal, and Live At The Hollywood Bowl. Each reissue will feature a new remaster along with updated artwork and sleeve notes.
