Morrissey to drop new album featuring Iggy Pop and Miley Cyrus

A new record signing deal with Capitol will see the release of a brand new album from Morrissey early next year.

Morrissey has officially signed the dotted line with Capitol records. With a new album already on the way, and a couple of surprise guest vocalists Iggy Pop, and Miley Cyrus, the record is set to drop in February 2023.

Titled Bonfire of Teenagers, and produced by Andrew Watt, the forthcoming album features Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Josh Klinghoffer, Flea, Miley Cyrus, and Iggy Pop.

In a recent interview with Spin, Pearl Jams  Eddie Vedder heaped on early praise, sharing that Bonfire of Teenagers, “was some of the greatest Morrissey I’d heard since back when it was the greatest Morrissey. This was like solid, great Morrissey, the whole time.”

Capitol Records has also acquired the rights to Morrissey’s solo albums Southpaw Grammar, You Are the Quarry, Ringleader of the Tormentors, Years of Refusal, and World Peace Is None of Your Business, and will release them in deluxe vinyl editions.

Morrissey will also be in North America for a fall tour soon that includes NYC-area shows at Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre on November 30 and Newark’s NJPAC on December 1.
