Smiths alumnus is let go...
Morrissey has to find a new home for his depression. Morrissey fansite True to You reports that Harvest Records has released the singer from his contract. The move comes just three weeks after Morrissey's most recent album World Peace Is None Of Your Business was released. The LP opened at #2 in the UK and #14 in the US.
While the album is doing well, Morrissey's relationship with Harvest seemed a bit rocky after he posted a statement on True to You praising three fan-made music videos for songs from the album but criticizing Harvest at the same time. The post read, "These videos fully understand the intent of the song, and I am relieved that these films exist. 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."
World Peace Is None of Your Business was Morrissey's first LP with Harvest.
