Morrissey may have (once again) been forced to cancel his North American tour due to illness, but the release of his new album, World Peace Is None Of Your Business, remains scheduled for July 15th via Harvest Records/Universal. In anticipation, the album is streaming in full at NPR.org.
World Peace marks the former Smiths frontman’s 10th solo album and first since 2009’s Years of Refusal. Spanning 12 tracks, the album was recorded in France with Moz’s touring lineup of Boz Boorer (guitar), Jesse Tobias (guitar), Solomon Walker (bass), Matthew Walker (drums), and Gustavo Manzur (keyboards). Joe Chiccarelli served as producer.
Pre-orders are now ongoing. Below, check out to the spoken-word version of “Earth is the Loneliest Planet” and its accompanying video, starring Pamela Anderson.
