    Kristeen Young, the New York keyboardist, songwriter and vocalist, has some crucial friends in high places -- Morrissey and Dave Grohl. Can't beat having THOSE two in your corner.

    Young was handpicked by Morrissey to open 26 concerts in May, the same month she releases her new album, The Knife Shift. The album was co-produced by the legendary Tony Visconti and featuring Dave Grohl, who plays drums on the entire album and guitar on five songs.

    The album is out May 13.

    Morrissey has become enamored of Young and the two have developed an on-going show partnership, with Young opening for him on several tours since 2006.

    If Morrissey and Grohl dig K. Young, she has to be good!
