For the first time in his career, Morrissey is ready to shine on Broadway. He will be coinciding with California Son, which released on May 24th via Étienne Records/BMG.

He will be playing a show at Lunt-Fontanne Theater in New York City, and performing from May 2nd – May 11th. He is promising “an intimate yet exciting exploration of Morrissey’s career.”

After last year’s “heartfelt” (Rolling Stone) cover of the Pretenders’ “Back on the Chain Gang” gave fans a taste of what was to come, Morrissey follows his acclaimed eleventh studio album ‘Low in High School’ with ‘California Son’ that will see Moz take on luminaries of the 60s and 70s like Joni Mitchell, Dionne Warwick, and Bob Dylan while also delving into more obscure musicians of the time, such as early gay icon Jobriath and political activist Phil Ochs. The collection also boasts collaborations with alt-rock royalty including Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day), Ed Droste (Grizzly Bear), Sameer Gadhia (Young the Giant), and LP.

Morrissey released a tease of ‘California Son’ recently by dropping his rendition of the Roy Orbison classic “It’s Over” (with LP).
