  • Mopey Brit legend Morrissey returned to Tucson to play for his adoring fans on May 23rd, 2012.

It's been three years since we seen a new album from Morrissey, but that's about to change in 2014. The Telegraph reported that the former Smiths lead singer signed a two-album record deal with Capitol Records. Morrisey will start recording his unnamed album in France on Feb. 1.

It will be produced by Joe Chiccarelli (the White Stripes, Beck, the Strokes), and recorded with his touring band, Boz Boorer (guitar), Jesse Tobias (guitar), Solomon Walker (bass), Matthew Walker (drums), and Gustavo Manzur (keyboards).
It's only a matter of time until Moz announces his 2014 tour dates, according to Pitchfork Review.
