You can always expect honesty from the former Smiths frontman Morrissey—especially on the tracks that make up his forthcoming album “Low in High School”. He’s already shared the cynical “Spent the Day in Bed,” and now, after previewing the song on BBC 6 Music, he’s officially released its second single “I Wish You Lonely.”

Morrissey maintains a synth-heavy, rock-forward beat as a vehicle for vigorous lyrics, taking a stab at the selfishness of world leaders: “Tombs are full of fools who gave their life upon command of monarchy, oligarch, head of state, potentate, and now, never coming back, never coming back.” In the lyric video, the song’s rousing message is displayed on the sign a boy is holding while he sits in a shopping cart.

Morrissey will be taking tracks from Low in High School on the road to spread the politically charged gospel before his album comes out November. 17th, Morrissey performed two tracks “Spent The Day in Bed” and “I Wish You Lonely.”  on Later… with Jools Holland, BBC Two (3rd October 2017)
