Billy Morrison Project Features Vai, Ozzy, Steve Stevens And More

Billy Morrison is set to release his third solo album, The Morrison Project, on 19 April 2024 via TLG/Virgin Music Group. The album features guest performances from musicians such as Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Idol, DMC, Al Jourgensen, Steve Vai, Steve Stevens, Linda Perry, Tommy Clufetos and JOHN5.

“I wanted to find a very specific kind of partnership for this record deal,” Billy Morrison told us. “One that honoured the artist and the music and didn’t restrict the creative vision behind the record that I had made.

“With Dennis Sanders and The Label Group, I found that partnership and more. They have embraced the multi-genre styles on the record, allowed me complete creative control, and have the ability to make sure this record is out there in all formats and on all platforms. I’m grateful to be a part of their stable.”

A first single, Drowning, will be released on 23 February, along with the official music video. The songs were written by Billy Morrison in collaboration with his guests.

“I couldn’t think of a better way to start the year than to make it official and announce the signing of Billy Morrison to The Label Group,” says Dennis Sanders of The Label Group. “While the guest artists on Billy’s record are very impressive, it’s the songwriting that sold me. We feel blessed here at TLG to have the opportunity to bring this music to the world.”

Morrison, the British guitarist, singer, and songwriter, is primarily known as Billy Idol’s rhythm guitar player for the past 15 years alongside lead guitarist Steve Stevens and for his previous role as bassist in The Cult.
