It will be the former Smiths star’s first album in five years and will be released by Harvest Records, which is part of the Capitol Music group.

Morrissey, is ready to get back to recording and performing after a difficult 2013. His doctors advised him to take it easy after he suffered from a bleeding ulcer, pneumonia and a throat condition at the start of the year. He was forced to cancel a string of live shows.

Now the 54-year-old plans to head to France to record his tenth solo album with his band, Boz Boorer, Jesse Tobias, Soloman Walker, Matthew Walker and Gustavo Manzur. The album will be produced by Joe Chiccarelli who has previously worked with U2, Elton John, The Strokes, The Killers, Alanis Morissette and Dropkick Murphys.

Capitol Music Group Chairman and CEO Steve Barrett told the NME: “Morrissey is clearly one of music’s most important and influential artists. He is the rare soul who has stayed consistently true to his artistic vision and ethical principles since he first exploded onto the scene in the 1980s.

“We are so happy that he has chosen Capitol Music Group as his home and that his forthcoming album on Harvest will bring new Morrissey music to the world.”

Morrissey is also keen to get back on the road and a tour is set to be announced later in the year.
