The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre just got highly techno with Morrissey hitting Broadway. I mean if Bruce Springsteen can do it. Morrissey will Broadway May 2-11 before his anticipated album California Son release via via Étienne Records/BMG of classic 1960s and ’70s covers on May 24th.
Morrissey recently teased the release of ‘California Son’ by dropping his stirring rendition of the Roy Orbison classic “It’s Over” (with LP) — LISTEN HERE
The former Smiths frontman released a well-received cover last year of The Pretenders’ “Back on the Chain Gang.” The album delivers versions of Joni Mitchell, Dionne Warwick and Bob Dylan as well as lesser-known artists like Jobraith and Phil Ochs. Green Day’s Billy Joe Armstrong, Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste and Young the Giant’s Sameer Gadhia appear on the album as collaborators.
