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'.

What's Your First Line Going To Be? The Futureheads Discuss Their Long-Awaited Return With 'Powers'
Tue 27 Aug 2019
The stars of mid-2000s indie discos are frozen in time in the memories of a lot of people—their music might as well be an advert for sticky floors and test tube shots. And that’s where the Futureheads, who had a couple of songs that were students’ union staples, might still reside in the eyes of some.
Tool - Fear Inoculum (Album Review)
Fri 06 Sep 2019
Photo: Travis Shinn If you’ve waited a long time for something, you might as well spend a long time with it once it finally arrives, right? Tool’s return, after a 13 year absence that amounted to torture for their committed following, is a slow moving, dense work defined by its patient approach. Its steadfast insistence on hitting its marks in its own time, and skipping zero pages in the band’s playbook, will delight diehards.
Ezra Furman - Twelve Nudes (Album Review)
Wed 04 Sep 2019
Seeking to stay true to a punk aesthetic, Ezra Furman and band recorded ‘Twelve Nudes’ at a rapid pace with creative help from booze and cigarettes. And it shows. It doesn’t deliver the production finesse of 2018’s ‘Transangelic Exodus’, but that’s kind of the point.
The Futureheads - Powers (Album Review)
Mon 02 Sep 2019
‘Powers’ is the Futureheads’ sixth studio album and the first since the band went on hiatus following the lukewarm reception to their excellent a capella offering ‘Rant!’ in 2013. It is a return to the thrashy post punk sound that characterised their early success, and while familiar problems arise with several songs, it is a record of intricate and innovative arrangements that should place them firmly back on the European festival circuit next year.
