Washington, Jan 16 (ANI): Singer Morrissey has scrapped plans to retire this year after signing a new record deal.

He is now making plans to release another album, Contactmusic reported.

The former The Smiths frontman, who suffered a string of health woes in 2013 which forced him to cancel concerts, looks set for a brighter 2014 after joining the roster at Harvest Records, a new label imprint of Capitol.
