Morrissey has today released new track “Knockabout World”, the 3rd track to be taken from his new album, due next month. The song opens with Morrissey singing “Congratulations – you have survived, Congratulations – you’re still alive!” filling the track with melodrama…it’s a catchy 3 minute song featuring synth riffs, twinkling electronics and jangling guitars which build to an orchestra of lush euphoric strings.

The album, produced by Joe Chiccarelli (Beck, Tori Amos, The Strokes, The Killers, The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, etc), and recorded at Studio La Fabrique in Saint- Rémy de Provence, France, and Sunset Soundin Hollywood, California, also saw it’s first single, ‘Bobby Don’t You Think They Know?’, featuring backing vocals by legendary R+B Icon Thelma Houston and second single ‘Love Is On Its Way Out’ released to great critical and fan response.
