Morrissey has announced plans for another book, though this time it will be based on fiction. As revealed during a recent fan Q&A, he’ll follow-up 2013’s Autobiography with a novel.

No additional details were revealed, though Morrissey insinuated that he’s motivated to continue writing due to his music’s lack of recent success. (If you recall, he’s had trouble finding a record label to release his next album).

He said Autobiography “has been more successful than any record I have ever released,” adding, “The actuality is that radio stations will not play my music, and the majority of people have lost faith in the music industry, and it’s generally assumed – quite rightly – that the number one chart positions are ‘bought’ by the major labels, so there really is no passion left in pop or rock music, and I don’t think people believe for an instant that the faces we constantly see on television and in magazines are remotely popular. It’s all, now, solely a question of marketing. All success stories are safe and dreary, and you will never be taken by surprise by a hit song that sounds out of place. This is not just my view but the view of everyone I know.”

Despite all that, Morrissey isn’t ready to give up on music just yet. He said he’s about to to record another new album, which features a track called “Istanbul”. He also suggested the possibility of more touring, including a trip to Asia.
