    Here you go. The recording of the interview.

    Der Audiomitschnitt zum SPIEGEL-Interview mit Morrissey - Spiegel Online
    Sänger Morrissey fühlt sich nach einem Interview mit dem SPIEGEL falsch zitiert und will nun nie wieder mit Printmedien sprechen. Hören Sie hier den Mitschnitt des Interviews.

    English version:

    The Audio of DER SPIEGEL's Interview with Morrissey
    British pop singer Morrissey has accused DER SPIEGEL of falsely quoting him in a recently published interview. The magazine stands behind its reporting and has made the decision to post the audio online in response.

    On Friday, Nov. 10, DER SPIEGEL culture reporter Juliane Liebert told her editors that she had been offered an interview with British popstar Morrissey and that a decision needed to be made quickly on whether to accept. We agreed: The former lead singer of The Smiths doesn't shy away from speaking his mind - and he also doesn't grant interviews very often.

    The following Monday, Liebert flew to Los Angeles, where she was to interview Morrissey on Tuesday. The interview appointment got delayed several times before finally taking place on Wednesday and lasting 40 minutes. Edited versions of interviews published in DER SPIEGEL are usually authorized by the interview subject before publication, consistent with established procedure in German journalism. But in this instance, Morrissey's team elected to forego authorization.

    After its publication on Nov. 18 in DER SPIEGEL, the interview (available behind the SPIEGEL Plus paywall in German) generated headlines not only in the German-language media. English publications like the Independent also wrote about Morrissey's statements regarding Trump, Brexit, the #MeToo debate and questions of national identity.

    The musician then sought to distance himself from the published interview. "Unless you see the words form in my mouth and then you see or hear the words come out of my mouth... please, if you don't see that, I didn't say them," he told fans at a concert. He said he would never grant an interview to a print journalist again.

    On Monday, Morrissey followed up with a post on his official Facebook page casting doubt on whether his statements had been reflected accurately by DER SPIEGEL. He also alleged that the fact that the magazine had not yet posted the raw audio of the interview was tantamount to an indirect admission of guilt.

    To counter that claim, the editors of DER SPIEGEL have decided to post the audio of the interview online.

      Now he lives in a 'lovely' section of Cheshire. LOL
      In every post he has to remind us of his great wealth :crazy:, a la Skinny boasting about being an expert in the inflammatory qualities of Vitamin C, or any number of things.
      21st century statesmen taking govt assistance. :laughing:

      Sorry Anon, but you don't need weed to know what a hot air balloon is.
      Maybe it's over your head? (see what I did there?)
      And I most certainly do not need to give up weed.
      It's a lot of fun.
      You're very judgemental aren't you?
      You accuse Surface of hiding his sexuality (why would he want to do that?).
      You can't help but keep mentioning my liking for weed.
      Why do you feel the need to do this?
      I have never and would never make any comments about how you run your life.
      Admittedly I know nothing about you as you know nothing about me or Surface.

      now i know for sure that you gotta give up the evil weed. the weed has taken over your mind
      and is writing your posts. dont listen to the weed in your mind, get rid of the weed. that way
      you can get a job and be productive like Moz.
      i mention the weed because you said you posted under the weed. therefore im replying, basically,
      to the weed. :rolleyes:
      why surface is hiding his sexuality you are going to have ask him LOL:brows:

      Maybe you should consider taking up Vitamin C instead of weed, you wont get high but at least you
      wont be inflamed and blow up.

      OK Anon. Whatever you say mate.
      I'm off for a snort, a smoke and a good bumming.

      WtF? I thought you said you knew nothing about me (now you are coming over with the imaginary wives, daughters and money, a couple rolls of fabric and some bottles of Vit C and a big baggie of weed.).

      Wait, I take it you been puffing..right?:rolleyes:
      Thank God you are not bringing the old Jesus gay dude with you.:mad:
    10. Peterb
      Let's be clear here. My intention is to pop over so we can consumate the simmering passion between us.
      Your crush on me is all too evident.
      (You can't stop posting messages to me)
      Also your pretense of homophobia is clearly overcompensation.
      Lets get it on!

      Well yes, things do get a little hazy after hours of 'puffing'.
      Great post though.
      I particularly liked the bit about 'gay dudes'.
      By the way, I think you get wood when you write your posts.
      What with all the emojis and capitals and stuff. Very energetic.
      And you do fancy me. We can all see that. ('Like' this post if anyone agrees).
      By the way, why would you care about me being either gay or a weed smoker. And what on earth makes you think I'm either?

      But Surface, he's hilarious! His last post was 'laugh out loud' funny.
      He loves his 'wtf's.
      But I have to be honest, he is wearing me out.
      His type are always better at this shit.
      I may have to concede the field.
      I haven't the stamina.

      He's very good.
