Morrissey isn’t wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.
Over the weekend, the British singer took to his website to announce a split with his label, Capitol Records. He also claimed Miley Cyrus requested that she be removed from a song they had recorded.
Morrissey wrote in a post titled “Miley Is a Punk Rocker” that “Miley Cyrus now wants to be removed from the song ‘I Am Veronica,’ for which she volunteered backing vocals almost two years ago.”
A day earlier he wrote “Roll On 2023,” with the news that “Morrissey has voluntarily parted company with Maverick/Quest management. Morrissey has also voluntarily ended his relationship with Capitol Records (Los Angeles).”
The album “Bonfire of Teenagers” by Morrissey was scheduled to be released in February 2023. There is no word on when or if it will be released.
Morrissey enraged some concertgoers in November when he abruptly exited the stage after only 30 minutes of his performance at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre. He cancelled several more shows the following month, citing illness in his band.
In recent years, the ex-Smiths frontman has alienated some fans due to his political views and controversial statements about race and immigration.
