Morrissey dropped from label
2014-08-14 by JohnnyTwoToes | 27 Comments
True To You broke the news on Saturday, just three weeks after the release of Morrissey’s new album, World Peace Is None Of Your Business. A statement on the fanzine read: “…Capitol Records/Harvest have ended their relationship with Morrissey, as directed by label boss Steve Barnett. Morrissey is once again in search of a record label.”

The news comes less than a week after Morrissey, on the same fan site, released a statement that criticised the Capitol Records/Harvest label. In the statement he thanks fans for their homemade videos to songs from his latest album, before comparing them favourably to the actions of his label: “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.” In the same message, Morrissey also found time to claim that “Meat consumption is climate change.”

Well, he's right. Morrissey is stating facts. Salesmen are deceptive, Americans eat too much meat. Methane gas (cow farts, or any animal farts for that matter) in large quantities accelerates climate change. Also, businesses can be deceptive. I really don't get why people are annoyed by this. "How dare Morrissey state scientific facts, what a weenie." No, sirs or madams, you are weenies. Morrissey is right.

I just love that he said a few years back that he'd never come play Canada again until we ban seal hunting.

A Morrissey-free life...what ever will I do?

"Death for no reason is murder."

Actually, no; this statement couldn't be any more fallacious. One (or more) human being(s) killing
(an)other(s) for any reason other than those explicitly permitted by relevant statutes is murder.
Absolutely nothing else qualities.

People commit murder for reasons. Nobody and nothing dies without one, actually.

He hasn't been dropped from his label. Old article. Should use valuable sources.

Article is wrong, Morrissey forced the label to drop him as he stripped them of the rights of the album. Moz and moz himself owns World Peace and will rerelease it with another future label,
