In a parting message to the year that was, Morrissey left a note on his website entitled Roll On 2023. The statement said, “Morrissey has voluntarily parted company with Maverick/Quest management. Morrissey has also voluntarily withdrawn from any association with Capitol Records (Los Angeles).”
The following day, he posted another message called Miley Is A Punk Rocker with a photo of the pair in the studio. “Miley Cyrus now wants to be taken off the song I Am Veronica for which she volunteered backing vocals almost two years ago,” the How Soon Is Now? singer claimed.
Morrissey continued, “This comes at a time when Morrissey has disassociated himself with Capitol Records (Los Angeles), who control the hidden album Bonfire Of Teenagers. Above, Morrissey and Miley during Miley’s session for I Am Veronica.“
Last month, Morrissey announced via his website that his forthcoming album Bonfire Of Teenagers had been postponed indefinitely.
“Bonfire Of Teenagers is no longer scheduled for a February release, as stated by this site. Its fate is exclusively in the hands of Capitol Records (Los Angeles).”
In a since-deleted post made earlier this year, Morrissey announced that the album would be slated for February 2023. The announcement read, “Capitol Records (Los Angeles) will release Morrissey’s Bonfire Of Teenagers in February 2023.
“The album will be released worldwide except for the United Kingdom, where there is no label deal.”
“Bonfire Of Teenagers is produced by Grammy-producer Andrew Watt, and was recorded in Los Angeles. The musicians on the album are Jesse Tobias, Andrew Watt, Josh Klinghoffer (ex-Chili Peppers), and Chad Smith and Flea (both of the Chili Peppers). The album features Miley Cyrus and Iggy Pop on additional vocals.”
Last month, the singer abruptly walked off stage around 30 minutes into a show in LA after only nine songs with no warning. Footage from the event shows Morrissey exiting after performing Smiths’ single Girlfriend In A Coma, leaving his band to inform the crowd the show had been cancelled after an awkward few minutes.
“Sorry, but due to unforeseen circumstances, the show is not going to continue. Very sorry. We’ll see you next time. Apologies,” they said.
“The 58-year-old is still as horny and frustrated as ever, fully committing to a chaotic barrage of Spiders From Mars-ish guitars on My Love, I’d Do Anything For You, declaring rhetorically “Weren’t we all born / to mourn and to yawn at the occupations / that invade every day of our lives”. Lyrically, there’s much less decoding to be done than usual, but he sounds far from tired of it all,” we wrote in a review of his 2017 album, Low In High School.
