Controversial singer/songwriter Morrissey has parted company with his record label, just three weeks after his latest album World Peace is None of Your Business was released by Universal’s US-based Harvest Records.
The news comes after Morrissey wrote a statement on his website/fanzine, True To You, thanking three fans for making unofficial videos for his latest single, adding “a similar document ought to have been harvested by the record label”.
The album, which was Morrissey’s first for the label, and his 10th in total, faired well entering at number two in the UK and number 14 in the US.
In the post, the 55 year-old singer went on to criticise meat-eaters and politicians, before claiming that he had not been invited to promote his new record on any television shows.
He gained attention recently when he told Hotpress “It would help if Jamie Oliver was gassed by Princess Anne, he kills more animals than McDonalds”, when asked how the UK could combat animal cruelty.
Morrissey claims in his latest post that he is “once again in search of a new label”. Perhaps he should consider the DIY approach?
