LOW IN HIGH SCHOOL is the first studio album from MORRISSEY since 2014 and his debut for BMG. The album sees BMG partnering with MORRISSEY on the launch of his new label, Etienne Records, and was recorded at La Fabrique Studios in France, and at Ennio Morricone’s Forum Studios in Rome. The record is produced by Joe Chiccarelli, who has worked with Frank Zappa, The Strokes, Beck and The White Stripes amongst many others.

Rising to prominence as frontman of THE SMITHS, MORRISSEY went on to forge an even more successful career as a solo artist, with all ten of his solo albums reaching the Top 10 of the UK album charts, including three entries at the #1 position. Releasing his debut VIVA HATE back in 1988, he has since released a number of critically acclaimed follow-ups including KILL UNCLE and YOUR ARSENAL, and the hugely successful comeback album YOU ARE THE QUARRY after a five-year hiatus in 2004. In 2013, MORRISSEY then published his record-breaking autobiography on Penguin Classics, immediately topping the best-seller list with literary reviewers hailing it a masterpiece in writing and prose.
