Earlier this year, Morrissey shared details of a new studio album called ‘Bonfire Of Teenagers’, which he called “the best album of my life” upon its announcement.

The singer also recently shared a blog entry on Morrissey Central, written by freelance journalist Fiona Dodwell, discussing the response to Rick Astley and Blossoms‘ divisive Smiths cover shows.

Blossoms and Astley teamed up last month at the former’s gig in London to cover Smiths classics ‘Panic’ and ‘This Charming Man’, with the artists subsequently announcing two Smiths covers shows in Manchester and London next month.

In the new piece on Morrissey Central, titled ‘Morrissey, Astley and the usual suspects’, Dodwell writes: “Morrissey has made headlines and has been trending across social media sites over the last 24 hours, and as usual, it is not about anything he himself has said or done.”
