Morrissey has two albums of songs prepared, his guitarist Jesse Tobias reveals in the new issue of Uncut, out on Thursday (November 28).

Tobias explains that the singer, whose last full-length release was 2009’s Years Of Refusal, has a huge wealth of material ready to record and release.

“We’re long overdue for the studio,” he says. “There are two albums’ worth of songs ready.

“I’ve heard almost everything and feel it’s some of the strongest material to date. Musically diverse. Anthemic. Even in their infant stages the songs excite me.”

The new issue of Uncut, dated January 2014, is out on Thursday (November 28).
