Morrissey announces new album release for this summer

By Chelsea Lewis ,

Morrissey has plans to release a new album titled World Peace is None of Your Business. This is the first new album from the former Smiths frontman in over five years.

Morrissey announced the news on his online zine True to You.

His blog post proclaims he is "beyond ecstatic" about this record, which will feature 12 new songs.

The album title is a reflection about the need for world peace, but is not the positive take fans may have expected. Instead, Morissey is taking this album very seriously by singing about troubling issues in today's world.

Billboard reported that the upcoming album was produced by Joe Chiccarelli who has worked with The White Stripes and My Morning Jacket.

The album will be coming out in either late June or early July, according to Rolling Stone.

The album will be released by Harvest Records, a division of Capitol.

Fans have been waiting for a new record from Morrissey for a while, but the singer has publicly stated he would not do a self-release record and he wanted to wait for the right record deal.
