In a music career spanning four decades, Morrissey has been given a lot of labels.
From 'pioneering' and 'profound', to 'problematic' and 'prickly', the songwriter has been described in many different ways by press, fans and pundits alike.
But one definition that's always evaded him is 'ordinary'.
Nothing Morrissey does is ordinary.
Since skyrocketing to fame with The Smiths in the eighties (a band that earned a spot among the rock music vanguard), Morrissey has been a hugely influential yet divisive figure who constantly defies convention.
His new album, "I Am Not A Dog On A Chain", which the musician himself called "too good to be true [...] too true to be considered good", is set for release within a matter of weeks. But there's no customary domestic arena tour like you'd get with most UK artists.
Instead, Morrissey is playing a pair of very exclusive UK gigs.
The first takes place at First Direct Arena in Leeds on Friday 7 March, with the second gig scheduled for the SSE Arena in Wembley one week later.
There are still tickets available for both events online - presenting music fans with just two opportunities to see Morrissey in the flesh before the year is up.

In the meantime, you can get a taste of what to expect by listening to the first singles from the album on Spotify.
Morrissey will also be performing in Cologne and Paris before heading to the States - where he'll headline shows in New York and Carson before visiting Caesars Palace in Vegas.
