Morrissey has announced that the release of his upcoming album, Bonfire of Teenagers, will not take place as scheduled.
In a brief statement posted on his official website and social media accounts under the header “BONFIRE UNLIT,” Morrissey wrote, “‘Bonfire of Teenagers’ is no longer scheduled for a February release, as stated by this site.”
He revealed that the album’s fate is “exclusively in the hands of Capitol Records (Los Angeles).”
Announcing the album in May 2021, the singer claimed that it will be “the best album of [his] life”.
Bonfire of Teenagers, which would be Morrissey’s 14th solo album, is a follow-up to I am Not a Dog on a Chain, released in 2020.
