Morrissey is due to release his new album ‘California Son’ next month. The record, which is comprised of covers by artists like Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Dionne Warwick, will see the former Smiths frontman collaborating with the likes of Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste.
Meanwhile, Interpol are also set to release their new EP ‘A Fine Mess’ in May. Speaking to NME about the record, frontman Paul Banks said: “It’s a good way to interact with fans these days. In hip-hop, they put out mixtapes between records and it’s a good method. We’re engaged and active right now so it’s good to double down and turn the party up a notch.”
Banks added that the New York band were open to doing a tour to mark the 15th anniversary of their second album ‘Antics’. “I don’t know if there’s any thought about doing that for ‘Antics’, but I’m not categorically opposed,” he said. “I find those kind of shows to just be fun celebrations.”
