Morrissey is mulling a deal with Warner Bros. to release his next studio album, the artist said during a fan Q&A on the True to You Web site . The former Smiths frontman has issued his two prior albums on the Attack imprint via Sanctuary, which announced earlier this year it was reverting to a largely catalog-driven label.
Morrissey recorded for the Warner Bros. family from 1988-1995; a return to the company would presumably allow for a new stream of compilations and archival releases.
"I presently have the option to tour for the remainder of 2007, or start a new album," he said on True to You. "I don't have a deal, but I have an offer from Warner Brothers. At the same time, there are some great touring offers -- New Zealand, South Africa, my beloved Scandinavia, Israel and Iran. I would love to sing in Tehran."
The artist is presently touring in North America and will premiere a new song, "That's How People Grow Up," during a taping tonight (June 25) for CBS' "Late Show With David Letterman." The episode will air on Friday.
