Morrissey says he was fired from his label because of diversity

It seems that 2020 does not want to see anyone happy, not even Morrissey himself because things are not going well for him. And as always, the former singer of The Smiths is once again in the middle of the controversy, but this time it was not because of his veganism or expressing his somewhat radical ideas. Now he left us with our mouths open because he said openly and openly that he was fired from his label.

As you may recall, in 2019 the Manchester divo released a covers album, California Son and in March of this year he released his fourteenth studio album, I Am Not a Dog on a Chain. However, it seems that all the plans I had to release new music were left adrift because eThe British musician was left without a record label to back up his career, and of course he was in charge of making this situation public on the internet.

Morrissey’s fight with BMG

True to form, sir Steven Patrick Morrissey took advantage of the blog he has on his website to tell what happened with BMG. According to his own statements, he blamed the label’s “new ‘diversity’ plans” and stated that the company “dictates” how artists should behave ”; that yes, without citing specific evidence of his relationship with the label and what was the agreement between both parties.

As it is, Moz said: “BMG has appointed a new executive who does not want another Morrissey album. Instead, the new company executive has announced new ‘diversity’ plans within BMG’s artist roster, and all of Morrissey’s projected releases / editions have been scrapped. This news perfectly fits the relentless galvanic horror of 2020, we would be critically insane if we expected anything positive. “

Of course Uncle Morrissey didn’t stop there, for he mentioned how much Low in High School as the two albums he has released in recent years with BMG are the best he has composed. But nevertheless, He also made it very clear that he is looking for who is encouraged to publish his music:

“My three albums with BMG have been the best of my career, and I keep them until death. Recording them has been a crucial period in my life, and I thank the former BMG team and everyone involved for it. It’s still important to me to make music my way, and I wouldn’t want to be on a record company that so specifically dictates how their artists should behave, especially when the word ‘talent’ isn’t mentioned at all. “

What does the label say?

About all this controversy and in an interview with Pitchfork, The label stated that it would not renew Moz’s contract, but that it will continue to support the albums in its catalog that it recorded with them: “BMG has released three exceptional Morrissey Top 10 albums in the last three years, including some of the best work of his career. That three-album deal has come to an end. We wish him the best in the next chapter of his career. ”

Recently, Morrissey released the cover of T-Rex’s “Cosmic Dancer” that he recorded live with David Bowie in 1991.. No way, the only thing left for both us and the Manchester Divo is to wait for a record label to release the next albums that according to him, he was planning.
