“Society’s hell / You need me just like I need ya” Morrissey declares on “My Love I’d Do Anything For You”, the opening salvo from his 11th solo album proper, Low in High School.
With chest-bursting drums and a salacious guitar vamp, recalling “Glamorous Glue” from 1992’s Your Arsenal, the record swaggers into life; squalling, savage noise giving way to bold horns and disembodied, disquieting shouts.
While it may be easy to read that quietly smug couplet as a message to wavering fans, this is not a record constructed as any kind of sop to the insanely dedicated following Morrissey has crafted over the last four decades. It is, in fact, much like its predecessor, 2014’s World Peace is None of Your Business, a sonically adventurous,ambitiously choreographed record that, to these ears, appears to centre around a couple of key, if unusual, themes.
