Click above to watch Young perform her song ‘Pearl Of A Girl’ with Grohl and Smear on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Grohl produced Young’s new album, ‘The Knife Shift’.
Speaking to Billboard about the LP, Grohl recently described it as being “unlike anything I’ve done before” and added that it features “piano, drums, bass and guitar. That’s it. It’s bare, but very deep. Raw, but melodically complex. I love Kristeen. So much. I’ve never met anyone like her. Neither have you.”
Kristeen Young recently made headlines after Morrissey fansite True To You reported that the singer contracted a cold from his longtime support act Kristeen Young leading him to cancel his US tour. “It is with great sadness that the remainder of the US Tour has been cancelled,” read a statement. “The respiratory infection Morrissey contracted in Miami has worsened, and in the interest of making a full recovery, all further touring plans have been halted. Morrissey thanks his fans for their compassion, understanding, and well-wishes during this difficult period as he recuperates.”
However, Young denied this in a subsequent Facebook post, writing: “I did not ‘confess to a horrendous cold’. On Monday, June 2nd, I had an allergy attack that was over within 16 hours. I went to a doctor (on Monday, June 2nd), an allergy specialist, who gave me drugs for allergies…and they worked. I explained this (early on Tuesday, June 3rd) and offered this doctor’s phone number to Morrissey personally, via email, and the tour manager.”
She added: “I am very sorry that Morrissey is not feeling well. But I will not tolerate these lies….particularly about my health. This is really too much and bizarre.”
Morrissey’s latest LP ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business’ was released on Monday (July 14).
