Morrissey announces new solo album ‘I Am Not A Dog On A Chain’ and shares new song

Bigmouth strikes again, Morrissey has returned with news of his 13th solo studio album I Am Not A Dog On A Chain and a brand new song ‘Bobby, Don’t You Think They Know’.

The former Smiths frontman has been quietly going about his business of recording a new album and agitating everyone he meets over the last few months but now. Morrissey has shared the first taste of the new record.

The song ‘Bobby, Don’t You Think They Know’ is, in truth, unlike any Moz song we’ve heard before. Drenched in the midnight hour there is a degree of underbelly sleaze that isn’t often present in Morrissey’s efforts. But with the added bonus of Thelma Houston on vocals, this song really powers home.

Houston said of working with Morrissey, “One of the biggest joys for me in this business is getting the opportunity to collaborate with other top artists. I love the challenge to see if what I do can work with what they’re doing. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t. I think the blend of what Morrissey is singing and what I’m singing really works on ‘Bobby’. And it was a lot of fun working with M in the studio too!”

The new record was produced by Grammy-award-winning Joe Chicarelli, “I have now produced four studio albums for Morrissey,” said Chicarelli. “This is his boldest and most adventurous album yet. He has pushed the boundaries yet again – both musically and lyrically. And once again proving that as a songwriter and singer, he is in his own category. In truth, no one can be Morrissey but… Morrissey!”
