Morrissey has changed record labels, signing a new deal with Decca.
Morrissey's last album topped the UK chart on its release last year
The first release under this contract will be in February - a greatest hits compilation of the musician's solo material, along with two new songs.
It will follow a six-night run of sold-out shows at London's Roundhouse in January.
The ex-Smiths frontman, who is recording a new studio album in Los Angeles for release next autumn, said he was "very excited" about the deal.
Decca managing director Bogdan Roscic described Morrissey's career as "unique".
"Not so many artists can look back on more than 25 years at the top of their game, staying as credible, creative and relevant as on the first day.
"From the recent performances and the new material, I know 2008 is going to be a stellar year for Morrissey, and we are very proud he is now a Decca artist."
Morrissey first found fame with indie group The Smiths, whose acclaimed albums, including The Queen is Dead, regularly feature in critics' all-time best lists.
They split up in 1987, after which Morrissey launched a successful solo career, with hits such as Suedehead, We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful and Irish Blood, English Heart.
His most recent album, The Ringleader of the Tormentors, reached number one in the UK last year on the Attack record label.
