Listen To Morrissey’s New Song Featuring Billie Joe Armstrong And Lydia Night
The track is taken from Moz’s upcoming album California Son, which is due out on May 24 via Etienne Records/BMG.
We recently asked Lydia what is was like recording the song, and she told us: “I had no idea Billie Joe was on the song, which is really funny! I was hit up by my manager, and I guess someone on Morrissey’s team suggested me to be one of the vocalists on it, and I was like, ‘Yeah, of course!’ I’ve grown up loving The Smiths – my cat’s name is Morrissey! So I went in and sang background vocals on the song, and then left. And then I found out on the day it was announced that Billie Joe was on it too, which is crazy. I haven’t heard it yet, so I have no idea what it’s going to be like (laughs), but it’s a great song!
“I’ve met Billie Joe before, and he’s awesome. He’s great – he’s exactly what you’d expect. He’s really, really inspiring, and really intelligent. I mean, he’s built this empire and opened so many doors for so many bands – it’s crazy!”
Check it out below. Though it may only be subtle, it’s good to hear Billie Joe’s voice again, isn’t it?
