After teasing the release in the fall 2018, Morrissey has finally detailed his new covers album, California Son. The 12-track effort sees The Smiths frontman putting his own spin on classics by Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Dionne Warwick. Moz also offers updates on Carly Simon, Buffy Sainte Marie, Phil Ochs, and more.

Morrissey enlisted contributions from a handful of special guests, including Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, and Broken Social Scene member Ariel Engle. Additionally, Petra Haden, Sameer Gadhia of Young the Giant, and LP appear.

Moz has also revealed his cover of "It's Over," the 1964 hit single by rockabilly legend Roy Orbison.
