Morrissey – “It’s Over” (Roy Orbison Cover) (Feat. LP)

Late last year, Morrissey officially announced that he’d be releasing a covers album in 2019 called California Son. Today, the Moz has shared our first taste of it: a cover of Roy Orbison’s “It’s Over,” which was co-written by Orbison and Bill Dees and released in 1964.

California Son will also feature Morrissey covering tracks by Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Dionne Warwick, Phil Ochs, Carly Simon, Melanie, Buffy Sainte Marie, and more. It also includes guest spots from Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, the Regrettes’ Lydia Night, Broken Social Scene’s Ariel Engle, Young The Giant’s Sameer Gadhia, and Petra Haden.

Laura Pergolizzi, the musician who goes by LP, is featured on the Orbison cover. Listen to Morrissey’s take on “It’s Over” below.
