Morrissey plotting to expand record label with new acts

British rocker Morrissey is plotting to expand his new record label by signing up new artists.
Earlier this year (17), the former frontman of The Smiths partnered with bosses at music firm BMG to start his own label, Etienne Records.
The label’s first record, Morrissey’s Low in High-School, is released on Friday (17Nov17), and now the singer wants new acts to join him.
“Whatever happens in the world, music is for eternity,” the 58-year-old told Billboard magazine. “It’s a great pleasure and very healthy to produce and create, and I’d love to expand Etienne and sign up music that counts. Not marketing nonsense, but artists whose lives depend upon singing and playing music. They count in the long run.”
Announcing the launch of the label, BMG executive Korda Marshall said: “There are not many artists around today that can compare to Morrissey. He is an extraordinary talent. He is prodigious, literate, witty, elegant and above all, courageous.”
Morrissey is launching Low in High School by opening up pop-up shops in London and Los Angeles on Friday.
