Morrissey has announced two major US arena shows with very unusual support acts: veteran performers Sir Tom Jones and Sir Cliff Richard.

According to posters added to True To You, the shows are set to take place and LA's Los Angeles Sports Arena on May 10 and Brooklyn's Barclays Center on June 21. Tickets are not yet on sale. Both dates will include frequent Morrissey tour companion Kristeen Young.

In a statement, Morrissey said he was "honoured and thrilled" to have Jones and Richard on the bills.

Morrissey will release a new album later this year. The singer, who released his autobiography in October, has signed a new, worldwide record deal with Universal Music’s US-based Harvest Records. In a statement, he said he was "thrilled" to ink the deal.

Harvest’s joint general managers Piero Giramonti and Jacqueline Saturn confirmed Morrissey’s first album under the deal will be released in the second half of 2014, and that he is starting work on what will be his 10th solo album, the follow-up to 2009's 'Years Of Refusal', later this month in France with producer Joe Chiccarelli.

Morrissey will play:

Los Angeles Sports Arena (May 10)
Brooklyn Barclays Center (June 21)
