The news comes the week his new album ‘You Are The Quarry’ is released...

Morrissey is preparing to begin a week long residency on US television programme ‘THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG KILBORN’.

Beginning next week (May 24), Morrissey will record five performances for the programme, shown on the CBS network in America.

Although the show is taped every day, Morrissey will only record live material on two nights. He will also sit down for an interview with the talk show host on Monday.

Kilborn said he is a long time fan of the former Smiths frontman and previously booked him as a musical guest in 2002.

Morrissey released his new album, ‘You Are The Quarry’ this week and insiders are expecting strong placements in the US and UK charts.

He also set to perform a homecoming show at the Manchester MEN Arena this Saturday (May 29).
