Morrissey: 'There was a time when the music industry served the artist'
Morrissey says he has written a new album.
The singer told Israel's Walla that he is keen to find a distribution deal for release, rather than a full record deal.
The Brit's last album 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business' in 2014.
Morrissey said: "It is not possible to find a recording deal, so we would record it ourselves as soon as we can find a distributor who could make it available worldwide.
"There was a time when the music industry served the artist, but now the artist must serve the music industry...which is why everything is now so tasteless.
"Nowadays, everything is controlled and monitored so there is no chance of a singer who wants to be released to expose political opinion."
The singer added that his cancer diagnosis, which he revealed in 2014, has halted progress somewhat.
He said: "I think [cancer treatment] has slowed me down considerably because doctors and hospitals and medications are actually very aging in their way, and they can often exhaust you more than whatever medical problem you have. If I’m asked to give any more blood I think I’ll crack up."
