Low in High-School will be Morrissey’s first studio album since 2014 and his debut for BMG. The album will see BMG partnering with Morrissey on the new release and on the launch of his new label, Etienne Records. Low in High-School was recorded at La Fabrique Studios in France and in Rome at Ennio Morricone’s Forum Studios.
