Morrissey announces new album ‘I Am Not a Dog on a Chain’ — hear the first single

Morrissey this spring will follow up last year’s California Son covers record with his 13th studio album, an 11-song collection titled I Am Not a Dog on a Chain that is preceded by lead single “Bobby, Don’t You Think You Know,” which features vocal contributions from R&B singer Thelma Houston.

The Joe Chiccarelli-album, recorded in France in 2018, will be released March 20 via BMG. It can be pre-ordered now via, or the singer’s own webstore.

The album is the ex-Smiths singer’s first collection of new songs since 2017’s Low in High School.

Below, check out the tracklist and first single.

  1. Jesus, those song titles are embarrassing.

  2. Morrissey’s commitment to bigotry has been a real punch in the gut for me. As a result my enthusiasm to listen to any new album from him is pretty much zero. Which in many ways is heartbreaking.

  3. Dental Practice

    He is just so tiresome.

  4. Morrissey is not a bigot, he just disagrees with you. As far as the new single goes… is terrible. So, I guess I disagree with him.

  5. By far the best and most interesting thing Morrissey has released in a long time. Too bad he’s a Fascist now, otherwise I’d be excited…

  6. HalloweenJack

    Holy shit, can’t he just go away already? Enough.

  7. I for one am excited. Erect.

  8. tory and brexit rules

    thank you Moss, best album in decade and on elf ever best poetry. straight to face haters and freeloaders


  10. Boooooo

  11. Johnny Marr was the Smiths.

  12. I love Marr, but Morrissey released several albums every bit as good as The Smiths. Marr’s back catalog is lacking at best. Without Moz, The Smiths would never had existed.

  13. Without The Monochrome Set, The Smiths would never have existed
