Morrissey talks record labels, social media and world affairs on fansite


Morrissey has given his thoughts on record labels, social media and world affairs in a statement release to fansite True To You.

During the message, Morrissey hints that his record label was not entirely supportive of the idiosyncratic, spoken word videos which were created to promote new album ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business‘, and also claimed he is yet to receive an offer to appear on television to help support the record.

“I am indebted to three sources that have placed their own well-crafted videos on You Tube for the song World peace is none of your business,” he has written. “The three individual sources are named as Sharon Jheeta, Héctor González and wpeace123456. These videos fully understand the intent of the song, and I am relieved that these films exist. Yes, a similar document ought to have been harvested by the record label, but please understand that the pop or rock industry can be as dedicated to perpetuating public deception as the world of politics itself. God bless social media!”

“In answer to many people who have asked, I should like to finally make it clear that I have not received any television invitations – worldwide! – to either discuss World peace is none of your business, or even to sing any songs from the album.”
