It’s been only a couple of months since Morrissey dropped his latest album California Son, but he’s already gearing up for its follow-up. His next LP will be titled I Am Not a Dog on a Chain, and it’s expected to hit the shelves this year.

The former frontman of The Smiths described this album as “the very best of me” and he already shared its tracklist. It will feature a total of 11 songs, including a collaboration with Thelma Houston called “Bobby, Don’t You Think They Know?”

The R&B icon said that collaborating with other top artists happens to be one of her biggest joys and that she had a lot of fun working with Morrissey in the studio. “I love the challenge to see if what I do can work with what they’re doing. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t. I think the blend of what Morrissey is singing and what I’m singing really works on Bobby,” Houston said in a statement.

I Am Not a Dog on a Chain is scheduled to be released through BMG on March 20th.
