Is anyone else excited by the return of the amazing George Michael? Yeah, I thought so. He's still at the top of his game when it comes to making superb pop records. New single next month (UK), followed by the new album Patience in March (UK as well - no info yet on a US release date).

In other return-of-Brit-icons news:

Morrissey's long-awaited new studio album will be called "You Are the Quarry" and is targeted for a May release on the reactivated Attack imprint via Sanctuary, a spokesperson confirms to Other details about the project, including a track list or single, remain shrouded in secrecy. Morrissey is expected to tour behind the album, but no dates have been announced.

"You Are the Quarry" was produced by Jerry Finn, best known for his work with rock acts such as Green Day and Blink-182. It is Morrissey's first album since 1997's "Maladjusted," his final release for Mercury. The former Smiths frontman had been without a record deal [until] inking with Sanctuary last June.

Heaven knows we need him back. As the man himself says, "If you know the state of modern music in America these days, you know the world is full of crashing bores." Amen!
