JOHN: Thanks for talking to me because I know you don’t talk to the press anymore. I can guess the reasons why, but can you explain them now?

MORRISSEY: Yes. There is simply no point. They don’t print what you say, and they print what you didn’t say. There’s hardly any point in me being there! The function of reporting has disappeared. Now, all journalists are megastars and the only aim of their interview is to express and establish their own personal views, and to hell with whatever the interviewee says.

JOHN: So why have you agreed to talk to me?

MORRISSEY: Because you’re not from The Guardian....
From Warner: All the Young People Must Fall in Love (Bob Clearmountain Mix) / Rose Garden (Live at The Grand Ole Opry,
Nashville) is the fourth 7" release from Morrissey's album 'Low In High School'. Low in High School is
Morrissey’s first studio album since 2014 and was recorded at La Fabrique Studios in France and in Rome at
Ennio Morricone’s Forum Studios. The record is produced by Joe Chiccarelli (who has worked with Frank

zeitgeist of an ever-changing world.

Morrissey's management are doing their best Donald Trump impersonation in this latest post from his official Facebook page:



Over the weekend, a merry prankster flew a new flag over Northcliffe House, the home of The Independent. A fed-up Moz fan perhaps at fake news? Either way we approve of the new logo! -Mgmt
