Black Cloud by Morrissey

Album: Years of RefusalReleased: 2009
  • This rockabilly number about unrequited love features some guitar work from Jeff Beck. The guitar legend explained to Mojo June 2009 how he came to play on this track: "The rumour was that he only talked to vegetarians! Well, I've been a vegetarian a f--king sight longer than he has! Chrissie Hynde was the catalyst between us. I met them at the bar in the Sunset Marquis during cocktail hour. They were s--tfaced. Morrissey leant over to Chrissie and I thought he wanted to leave. Chrissie turned to me and said, 'He's too shy to say it, but he would like you to play on a track on his album.' The next day I found a CD under my door with a note from Morrissey saying, 'It was really nice meeting you, would you play on this track?' We knocked it out in a couple of hours. He was charming: I never thought he would even give me the light of day."
  • This was one of four co-writes that guitarist and frequent collaborator Boz Boorer contributed on Years of Refusal. He also co-penned "I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris," "That's How People Grow Up,"and "One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell."
