Morrissey announces European tour, chose tracklist / cover art for new Ramones comp; Moz LP pulled from digital services

Morrissey in Austin earlier this year (more by Tim Griffin)

It’s been three whole days (or so) since we last posted about Morrissey and whatever drama he’s seems to be drumming up for himself, so here’s your latest update. Over the weekend, Morrissey’s new album, World Peace is None of Your Business, disappeared off iTunes, Spotify and other digital services, much as Moz predicted it might.

In a note to, Morrissey says he’s “urgently seeking a label” to rerelease the new album.

That last bit came at the end of a tour announcement — European fall dates, to be specific. Hopefully for fans over there he won’t cancel them. Those are listed below. And finally, Morrissey is an on-the-record fan of ’70s New York punk (he wrote a book about New York Dolls before he started The Smiths) and was asked by Rhino Records to compile the tracklisting for their forthcoming Best of the Ramones. While the release date and actual tracklist are still TBA, Morrissey has shared the picture for the cover which he chose as well. It’s more in the style of his Smiths sleeves than anything from his solo career. That cover art, along with those European tour dates, below…
