First coming to fame in the 1980s as the lead singer and principal lyricist of the Smiths, English singer, songwriter, and author Morrissey is also a noted solo artist. Coming to public attention with the release of their eponymous debut album in 1983, the Smiths attracted a cult following with the help of Morrissey's witty and satirical lyrics, distinctive baritone voice and outsider charisma. After the group disbanded in 1987, he released his debut solo album, Viva Hate (1988), which was a critical success and reached number one on the UK charts. Morrissey has released elven studio albums to date, as well as an autobiography and a novel. In a 2006 poll for the BBC's The Culture Show, he was voted the second-greatest living British cultural icon. Morrissey's twelfth solo studio album, California Son, will be released in 2019.
