Morrissey has announced, his new album, I Am Not A Dog On A Chain, will arrive on March 20th via BMG. The album follows last year’s covers album California Son. Ahead of the album’s arrival, Morrissey has shared the lead-single “Bobby, Don’t You Think They Know?” I Am Not A Dog On A Chain was produced by the Grammy Award-winning producer Joe Chicarelli (Beck, The Strokes, The Killers). It was recorded during sessions at Studio La Fabrique in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Franceand Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California.

From Joe Chicarelli:

“I have now produced four studio albums for Morrissey.” “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!”

Morrissey has launched the album by sharing its lead single ‘Bobby, Don’t You Think They Know?’ The track features the Motown legend Thelma Houston, who is perhaps best known for her interpretation of ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’ which topped the Billboard Hot 100 in 1977.

Houston on 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,” it was a lot of fun working with M in the studio too! “

This new announcement follows the news that Morrissey hit #1 on this week’s UK Vinyl Singles Chart with his cover of Roy Orbison’s 1964 classic ‘It’s Over’. Initially released exclusively via HMV, the single will receive its full release on January 24th.
