The release date and cover design for Morrissey‘s first novel List Of The Lost have been unveiled as promised earlier this week.

The design is above, and the book will be available from September 24th on paperback in the UK, Ireland, Australia, India, New Zealand and South Africa.

Penguin are handling the book’s release, as they did with the former Smiths singer’s 2013 autobiography, but he’s yet to find a similarly settled home for his music after leaving Harvest Records not all that far on from the release of ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business‘ in July 2014.

Morrisey told fansite True To You it was ‘a sad sign of the times’ that he’d received no label interest during a recent tour of the States, while Spanish newspaper El Pais learned:

“I recently contacted some labels and all have rejected me. Pop music lives in the era of marketing which just leads to people with very low levels of competition, it is much easier to get rid of them once six months of fame have evaporated.”
