Now Low in High School is going to be his first studio album since 2014. This new album will be a collaboration of Morrissey and BMG. It is being produced by Joe Chiccarelli, who is notable for his achievements with Frank Zappa, The Strokes, Beck and the White Stripes.
Low in High School was recorded at La Fabrique Studios in France and Ennio Morricone’s Forum Studios in Rome. A prevalent theme in his work combines beautiful melodies with political statements capturing the essence of today’s world.
