    Pop icon Morrissey’s upcoming new album features two songs with titles making reference to Israel, it has been confirmed.

    The former Smiths frontman is known to be a strong supporter of the Jewish state and has played numerous concerts in Tel Aviv.

    On Tuesday it was announced that Low in High School,  the outspoken singer’s first album since 2014, would include the songs The Girl from Tel-Aviv Who Wouldn’t Kneel and another titled Israel.

    Morrissey’s positive stance on Israel stretches back over a decade – he once appeared on stage in Tel Aviv draped in an Israeli flag.

    In 2008 he ignored calls by BDS campaigners to pull out of a concert there and  ended a show saying: “God bless Israel”. He also appeared in a video with the word “Israel” tattooed on his forearm in Hebrew.

    In 2012 Morrissey was given a key to the city of Tel Aviv by Mayor Ron Huldai .

     "I have become a small face of Tel Aviv. I will be very happy to represent with integrity and loyalty,” the singer said.

    He also once attacked political critics for attacking the entire population of Israel for the election of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    Morrissey’s new album will be released on November 17. He shared a song from the album called Spent The Day In Bed on Tuesday along with a tweet of the song title.
