Morrissey's collaborator Boz Boorer has said the singer has an 'arsenal' of new material.

Speaking to God Is In The TV, Boorer was asked about the 'music industry slump' and said that Morrissey has been unable to score a record deal, but has still been actively writing new material. He commented: "Not with regard to shows but Morrissey is unable to secure a record deal so we haven't made a record in a few years, despite having an arsenal of new material." Morrissey's last album, 'Years of Refusal', was released in 2009 through Decca/Polydor and was his ninth solo LP.

Boorer also spoke about Morrissey's recently released 'Autobiography', saying: "I have only just started reading it but I am finding very well written, informative and funny." Earlier today it was revealed that actor David Morrissey has recorded the voiceover for the audiobook version of the book. Morrissey fansite True To You reports that the actor, known for roles in The Walking Dead and State Of Play, recorded the "complete and unabridged" voiceover for digital release on December 5. It was recently confirmed that Autobiography will get its US release on December 3.

The book was published on October 17 and contains revelations about the former Smiths singer's professional and personal life. It was reported shortly after its release that it is likely to be a Christmas best-seller.

True-To-You.net also recently reported that Morrissey had just been in hospital. The former Smiths man was discharged from the Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California on November 2 after receiving treatment for concussion, whiplash and an arm injury. The post read: "Morrissey has now been discharged from Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles following treatment for concussion, whiplash and an arm injury. Morrissey would like to thank the medical staff at Cedars-Sinai for their 'outstanding level of care and attention'."
