On Thursday, Morrissey posted a new, lengthy diatribe on True-to-You in which he criticized his record label, Capitol/Harvest, for failing to fund a music video behind his new album, World Peace Is None of Your Business. Come Sunday, he now finds himself without a label.
In a statement on True-To-You, Morrissey announced that he’s been dropped by Capitol/Harvest, “as directed by label boss Steve Barnett,” and is now in search of a new label. He also reminds us how well the album did commercially despite the lack of support from the label.
The full statement reads as following:
Three weeks after the release of Morrissey’s World Peace Is None Of Your Business (#2 UK, #14 US), 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.
Our next chance for Morrissey drama comes in October when he attempts to return to the road for a leg of European tour dates. Stay tuned.
