Morrissey Gives Health Update, Confirms New Music is ‘Written’

"If I’m asked to give any more blood I think I’ll crack up."

By Hayden Wright

Almost two years has passed since Morrissey went public with his cancer battle, and in a new interview with Israeli publication Walla, he provided an update. He characterized the long road to recovery as exhausting and demoralizing, but promised he has new music on the way.

“I think [cancer treatment] has slowed me down considerably because doctors and hospitals and medications are actually very aging in their way, and they can often exhaust you more than whatever medical problem you have,” he said. “If I’m asked to give any more blood I think I’ll crack up.”

On the new music front, Morrissey said his next album is “written,” but business questions are leaving its fate up in the air.

“It is not possible to find a recording deal, so we would record it ourselves as soon as we can find a distributor who could make it available worldwide,” he said. “There was a time when the music industry served the artist, but now the artist must serve the music industry… which is why everything is now so tasteless.”
