After years of refusal, famously outspoken musician Morrissey has joined Twitter, and although he has only tweeted twice, he has already racked up over 57,000 followers.

He’s joined the social media site to promote his new album, Low in High School, and his maiden tweet referenced Spent The Day in Bed, the first single to be lifted from the record. The song was played for the first time on BBC Radio 6 this morning and it makes the following clarion call for personal freedom - "no bus, no boss, no rain, no train". 

Morrissey, who is very forthcoming on his views on a wide range of subjects including vegetarianism, Donald Trump and bullfighting, followed up the tweet with another one which appeared to reference US states, which could he a hint at a tour announcement.

Low in High School will be released on Morrissey's newly-launched Etienne label through BMG on November 17, and will be Morrissey's first new collection since 2014's World Peace Is None Of Your Business.

The new album, Morrissey’s 11th solo outing, was recorded at La Fabrique Studios in France and in Rome at Ennio Morricone’s Forum Studios and was produced by Joe Chiccarelli, who has previously worked with Frank Zappa, The Strokes, Beck and The White Stripes.

News of the new album follows the recent release of Morrissey biopic England is Mine, which stars Jack Lowden as the singer between the years 1976 and 1982.
