HARVEST RECORDS GMs PIERO GIRAMONTI and JACQUELINE SATURN have announced the signing of legendary Alternative artist MORRISSEY to a worldwide recording agreement. His first album under the deal will be released in the second half of this year; tour dates for 2014 will be announced soon.
“MORRISSEY is clearly one of music’s most important and influential artists," CAPITOL MUSIC GROUP Chairman/CEO STEVE BARNETT said. "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 a truly singular artist whose music and live performances first captured a worldwide audience 30 years ago and never let go," CMG EVP MICHELLE JUBELIRER added. "He is uncompromising in his integrity, extremely devoted to his fans and an artist with a unique and needed voice in our culture. It’s so great that MORRISSEY is with CMG, and, more important, that he is about to record his first new album in five years.”
