The Smiths is the eponymous debut studio album by English rock band the Smiths, released on 20 February 1984 by Rough Trade Records. After the original production by Troy Tate was felt to be inadequate, John Porter re-recorded the album in London, Manchester and Stockport during breaks in the band's UK tour during September 1983. The album was well received by critics and listeners, and reached number two on the UK Albums Chart, staying on the chart for 33 weeks
This album and its follow-ups-Kill Uncle, Your Arsenal, and Vauxhall and I-all did well on the UK Albums Chart and spawned multiple hit singles. Replacing Marr, he took on Alain Whyte and Boz Boorer as his primary co-writers. During this time, his image began to shift into that of a burlier figure who toyed with patriotic imagery and working-class masculinity. In the mid-to-late 1990s, his albums Southpaw Grammar and Maladjusted also charted but were less well received. Morrissey's librarian mother encouraged her son's interest in reading. He took an interest in feminist literature and particularly adored the Irish author Oscar Wilde, whom he came to idolise. The young Morrissey was a keen fan of the television soap opera Coronation Street, which focused on working-class communities in Manchester; he sent proposed scripts and storylines to.
This time, he used a BBC 6 Music live broadcast to complain that Ukip’s leadership contest was rigged to prevent a win by Anne Marie Waters, an openly anti-Islam candidate. Which brings us to stage three: the album itself – already acclaimed as a brilliant return to form by people who can remember a time when Morrissey only released extraordinary records and know he’s capable of making them still, 2006’s Ringleader of the Tormentors being the most recent example. But Low in High School largely cleaves to the model of its two less stellar predecessors.
The album will have twelve tracks and was recorded by the same producer of The Strokes and U2. João Perassolo João Paulo Martins SAO PAUILO Singer-songwriter Morrissey, a former lead singer of the English band The Smiths, first laid out details of their new album, which will be released in March 2019. The album was produced by Joe Chicarelli - who has worked with names like The Strokes, U2 and Elton John - and recorded at the famous Sunset Sound studio in Los Angeles. Joe brought in a lot of new musicians and we experimented with a lot of sounds. Everything went fantastically well and we are proud, "said the singer. It's "Back on the Chain Gang," written by Chrissie Hynde and recorded by The Pretenders in 1982.
Morrissey has courted controversy and dared his fans to abandon him throughout his entire career, but Low in High School marks his second consecutive release that feels regrettably tethered to his increasingly alienating public persona. 2014’s muddled, exhausting World Peace Is None of Your Business was a career-low that’s now nearly impossible to hear. Shortly after its release, the album was removed from record distributors and streaming services due to a clash with his label: a move that feels as bluntly symbolic as, well, the conceit of a Morrissey song.

Face it, Morrissey is a dick, and there was a time that his music made us forgive him for that, but it seems those days are over. They’re over for a lot of people. It’s been a long time coming, which once again, begs the big ol’ question: Do we still love his albums? That’s a difficult question.
