Is this Morrissey’s Low In High School album cover? Moz’s close friend, the artist Linder Sterling, posted what sure seems to be the cover to his upcoming solo album on Instagram. According to fan site Morrissey-Solo.com, the kid in the photograph is Max Lopez, the son of Morrissey’s touring bassist Mando Lopez, who was present during the recording of the album in Italy.
There’s also a rumor that HMV, the UK retailer that Morrissey has previously accused of attempting to “freeze sales” of the Smiths’ The Queen Is Dead reissue, is refusing to stock the album in the UK because the cover art is offensive.
Low In High School is out 11/17 via BMG/Etienne Records.
