True to You is reporting that Morrissey has finished work on a new album. The record will be titled "World Peace Is None of Your Business" and is provisionally set for a worldwide release in June/early July. The album will come out on Harvest records through Capitol. The 12-track record was produced in France by Joe Chiccarelli. Morrissey is reportedly "beyond ecstatic" with the album.

It would seem that Morrissey didn’t follow Amanda Palmer’s advice to crowd-source the album. Last year, the Dresden Dolls frontwoman wrote an open letter to the singer in which she told him to fund the record through Kickstarter:

"You have some of the most fanatical fans in the world; caring and devoted people from countries far and wide who would be really, really happy to support you at levels far beyond $5 just to have the songs in their ears. You're possibly one of the best candidates on the planet to use crowdfunding, because of who you are and what you mean."

    not too long ago a friend of mine had a spare ticket to a Morrissey show and asked if I wanted to go with him. I had heard of Morrissey, but I didn't know any of his music. I went along anywho and I am so glad that I did. If you ever get the chance to see him live, take it, he is a very talented man.
    I'm luckily going to be able to see him in May. Hopefully he won't cancel for any health reasons like he did last year when I was supposed to see him.
    yeah hopefully. I enjoyed myself. I only wish I did know his music at the time as opposed to afterwards haha. Hopefully I'll have another chance to see him myself.
    I'm excited to see what this album will bring. Morrissey's solo career has been swinging between mediocrity and brilliance, which even he admits to. Hopefully, his band will be strong, and the man himself in a good place.
    I agree! You are the Quarry was a brilliant album! Ringleader of the Tormentors was decent.. in the last album was teetering. I can only hope that he has a great rock style album.
    What a prick of a guy.
    I don't know why you got downvoted, he's the biggest ******* for what he said about the Breivik massacre. "Nothing Compared To Actions Of Fast Food Chains" - Morrissey The Smiths were an amazing band, Morrissey is lower than shit as a person.
    I also don't understand the downvotes either, i can't think of a single thing this prick has said that i agree with! Talented musician but should shut the **** up most of the time!
    You three dummies keep posting and keep getting downvoted. Please continue, this is funny.
    Personally I don't understand why people refer to him as talented. His voice sounds like he's trying to sing with a mouth full of marbles.
