Something recent from section M of the vinyl archive today—and it’s from Morrissey. Earlier this year, he released an album called World Peace is None of Your Business. There was a lot of pre-release hype along with some short films that showed up online. But within seconds of the album hitting the stores in July, Morrissey got into some kind of brawl with his record label and everything collapsed.
What happened? It’s Morrissey. Anything can happen with him. And even though the reviews had been really good, it became very, very hard to find a physical copy of the record because Sanctuary, his label, had no intention of maintaining inventory. Fortunately, I was able to get a vinyl copy before everything went south. This is Morrissey from 2014 with the title track of World Peace Is None of Your Business.
