Morrisey announced last month that, despite aligning himself with far-right and pro-Brexit parties in the UK and saying lots of reprehensible things, he'd signed to Capitol Records and would release a new album, Bonfire of Teenagers, in February of 2023. It appears that timeframe is no longer certain, however. In a new post on his site titled "Bonfire Unlit," he writes, "'Bonfire of Teenagers' is no longer scheduled for a February release, as stated by this site. Its fate is exclusively in the hands of Capitol Records (Los Angeles.)"
Bonfire was made with producer Andrew Watt, has Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and former bandmate Josh Klinghoffer as main session players, and also features Flea, Miley Cyrus, and Iggy Pop.
