Morrissey ponders recording new album

Former Smiths star says he's been offered a new deal

Morrissey has spoken of his plans to record a new album – even though he does not currently have a record deal.

The singer’s last LP was 2006’s ’Ringleader Of The Tormentors’.

Answering fan questions on the site, when asked if he would be releasing another album soon, the former Smiths singer said: “I presently have the option to tour for the remainder of 2007, or start a new album.”

He added: “I don’t have a deal, but I have an offer from Warner Brothers.”

However the star explained that he has been invited to play in some parts of the world that are new to him and would like to continue on the road.

“As the same time, there are some great touring offers – New Zealand, South Africa, my beloved Scandinavia, Israel and Iran,” he said. “I would love to sing in Tehran. So, for this week, it’s a dilemma.”
