MORRISSEY launches video for JACKY’S ONLY HAPPY WHEN SHE’S UP ON THE STAGE!

Morrissey has unveiled his video for Jacky’s Only Happy When She’s Up On The Stage, taken from his top 5 album ‘Low In High School’. Set in a 1960s television studio filled with moody Go-go dancers, the video shows Morrissey lead satirical dance routines with his band playing a ‘Four Tops’ inspired backing group, clad in silk jumpsuits.

Despite being widely reported as such, the track is not a Brexit anthem, as recently stated by Morrissey “the song is not about Brexit, there’s no Brexit in it, the lyrics on the liner notes are headed for the exit”. 

The video is the second to be released from the new album ‘Low In High School’, Morrissey’s 11th straight Top Ten charting debut in the UK. Spent the Day in Bed, the album’s first single, paved the way, setting another milestone for Morrissey as it garnered the most airplay he’s received in years in the US and was a top 20 airplay hit in the UK.  “Spent” was also Morrissey’s first track to receive “A” list airplay on BBC Radio 2.

Low in High School is Morrissey’s first studio album since 2014 and his debut for BMG. The album sees 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. The record is produced by Joe Chiccarelli (who has worked with Frank Zappa, The Strokes, Beck and The White Stripes to name a few).

Rising to prominence as frontman of The Smiths, Morrissey went on to forge an even more successful career as a solo artist, now all eleven of his solo albums have landed in the Top 10 on the UK album charts, including 3 entries at the #1 position. Releasing his debut solo album Viva Hate back in 1988, he has since released a number of critically acclaimed follow-ups including Kill Uncle and Your Arsenal, and hugely successful comeback album You Are the Quarry after a five year hiatus in 2004. 

In 2013, Morrissey 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.
Low in High School Reviews 
 “Superbly Elegant” – 4 Stars” Daily Telegraph
“Consistently excellent – 4 Stars” Q
“A glistening and richly textured beast…partisan powerful and controversial” MOJO
“Il y a de grandes chansons dans ce disque, défendues par cette voix dont on se lasse pas..” LE SOIR
“Morrissey schopt als vanouds tegen de schenen, spoort de jeugd aan hetzelfde te doen en vraagt om oorlog in te ruilen voor zoete liefde. De idealist leeft nog.” HET NIEUWSBLAD 
“De hoes van zijn nieuwe album toont een jongen die de monarchie met een bijl omver wil beuken: een sprekende metafoor, die in de twaalf nieuwe songs uitgewerkt wordt als een groot conflict tussen diegenen die liefde en een betere wereld zoeken, en diegenen die enkel hun eigen gelijk of gewin nastreven.” DE STANDAARD
“The Moz reste un artiste à part. Et le dernier en date est d’un excellent cru.” METRO
