Capitol Records Los Angeles recently terminated their contract with Morrissey, therefore if any record label or private investor has interest in releasing this project, please contact Donnie Knutson at [email protected].
Fiona Dodwell wrote on Medium about Morrissey losing his deal and Miley Cyrus on the album, “It was in 2021 when Morrissey confirmed he had finished recording new album, Bonfire Of Teenagers. Shortly after, it was announced that Capitol Records would release the project and fans across the globe waited for what they assumed would be the imminent arrival of the artist’s 14th solo studio album.
As of today, the record has still not been released, Capitol Records show no sign of Morrissey on their artist’s roster, and the company has declined to comment on requests from the press to clarify the album’s status.”
