HiLobrow.com was recently drugged, blindfolded and pushed through a series of strangely booming rooms en route to an exclusive listening party for the new MORRISSEY (born 1959) album. And still we managed to take notes! Titled The Great Divorce and produced by Rolf Harris, Moz’s latest will feature the following eight tracks: “They Hanged My Saintly Billy” (groaning torch song), “You’ll Still Be Ugly In The Morning” (glam chug), “Goodbye To All That” (plasma-pop), “I Laughed For The First Time The Day You Drowned” (scuffling mozzabilly), “Arthurian Torso” (music hall), “I Can’t Hug You Anymore (I’ve Cut Off My Arms)” (unisex opera), “My Mate Stanley” (crime spree), and the epic, feedback-laden closer “Last of the Eager Hangers On.” You heard it here first, pop pickers!
