Morrissey has shared his short and rather blunt new year’s message for 2021.
The former Smiths frontman addressed his fans in a video which was recorded on New Year’s Eve (December 31) last week.
Keeping his message short, Morrissey begins the 23-second clip by addressing the camera and saying “to hell with 2020. To hell with it”.
He then repeats “to hell with it” a number of times before concluding the message by saying: “And here’s to tomorrow.”
He released his 13th solo studio album ‘I Am Not A Dog On A Chain’ in March. In a three-star review, NME said: “Significant parts of the album verge on the avant-garde, and certainly mark a bold departure for an artist who could easily have continued appeasing his cult faithful with winsome torch songs, ennui-encased indie pop and rapacious rockabilly.”
“This news is perfectly in keeping with the relentless galvanic horror of 2020,” Morrissey said in a statement. “We would be critically insane to expect anything positive.”
