Morrissey has apparently been dropped by his record label BMG, after releasing what he called ‘the best three albums’ of his career.

In a statement to Morrissey Central, it is claimed BMG decided to part ways as their new executive wants to diversify’ the artist rota. In other words, he’s been dropped. 

“This news is perfectly in keeping with the relentless galvanic horror of 2020,” Morrissey told the site, “we would be critically insane to expect anything positive.”

The singer, 61, added: “My three albums with BMG have been the best of my career, and I stand by them till death. Recording them has been a pivotal period in my life, and I thank the previous BMG team and everyone involved for that.

“It’s still important to me to do music my own way, and I wouldn’t want to be on a label that dictates so specifically how their artists should behave – especially when the word ‘talent’ is notably never mentioned.”

All of the upcoming releases by the artist have now been scrapped.
