Morrissey Shares Cover Of Wedding Bell Blues Featuring Green Day's Billie Joe Armstong

Monday, 08 April 2019 Written by Laura Johnson

Morrissey has released a new single.

Wedding Bell Blues was originally written and performed by Laura Nyro back in 1966 and was subsequently made famous by 5th Dimension in 1969.

The former Smiths vocalist's take on the track features Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong on backing vocals and musically stays true to the 1969 single. It will be included on his 'California Son' covers LP, which is due out on May 24.

The new single will get a 7" vinyl release on May 10, backed with a new original Morrissey track called Brow Of My Beloved. The latter was recorded in Rome and produced by Joe Chiccarelli, who also helmed 'California Son'.

Thom Yorke - Anima (Album Review)
Wed 03 Jul 2019
Photo: XL Recordings In the ‘90s and ‘00s, Radiohead were probably the world’s best rock band. Capable of generation-defining stadium bangers alongside heavily experimental sound happenings, the Oxford natives managed to maintain a stunning degree of creative integrity at a time when their contemporaries were falling over each other to sell out. ‘Anima’ is Thom Yorke’s third solo album, and it’s easily his most accomplished to date. Arguably, it’s his best work since Radiohead’s ‘In Rainbows’.
