    There is no second disc as Amazon first indicated.

    The press release (cut and paste from the Warner's sales portal) doing the rounds with the album details is brief:

    "First new studio album since 2017, I Am Not A Dog On A Chain was recorded at La Fabrique in France in 2018. The eleven track album, which was produced by Joe Chiccarelli, launches officially on the 10th of January 2020 and will be released on Friday 20th March 2020."


    Piccadilly Records now list it too with the same information (and have added It's Over to buy on the 24th too):


    Same via Rough Trade (they, too, have added It's Over 7"):


    Amazon (UK), since last night, now have the CD & black vinyl versions added and listed separately.

    Now for something via superdeluxe and it brings a couple of exclusives too.

    Clear vinyl:
    And an exclusive cassette.
    All found here - this is official and is a portal to buy pretty much everything except the indie red vinyl:


    As linked to here:

    There is an extended bit of press release there and Joe is quoted:

    ‘I Am Not A Dog On A Chain’ was produced by the Grammy Award-winning producer Joe Chicarelli (Beck, The Strokes, The Killers). It was recorded during sessions at Studio La Fabrique in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France and Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California.

    "I have now produced four studio albums for Morrissey,” said Chicarelli. “This is his boldest and most adventurous album yet. He has pushed the boundaries yet again - both musically and lyrically. And once again proving that as a songwriter and singer, he is in his own category. In truth, no one can be Morrissey but… Morrissey!”

    So, to summarise:
    Digital download,
    Black vinyl,
    Mporium w/l 'test pressing' (Limited to 100 copies?),
    Indie only clear red vinyl,
    Website only clear vinyl,
    Website only cassette.

    Apologies for the long post, lots of information happened at the same time.

      Now that would've been a better pic for the cover. Could someone use that photograph to mock-up an album cover for I'm Not A Dog On A Chain? Keep the pic as it is. Centre it on a black background. No need to put his name on the cover, just the title will do.

      I've thought about all of this quite a lot, and after having danced to it for a few rounds, I must say I do love the new track. The lyrics don't really come across as clever, nor do they tell a good story, but the title line enough is catchy enough to make for a fun track - in a way similar to 'classics' like Fatty.

      The artwork - obviously a painful joke to anyone with any interest in graphic design - actually has a grotesque quality that really shows the middle finger to how things should be done, so in that sense the style matches Morrissey's latest interviews which have been equally painful to observe. To sum it up: it's not all bad. And actually even looks somewhat acceptable on the cassette format, composition-wise.

      So the American collector gets screwed again,
      If I want the clear vinyl, which is only available through The Lp store (I'm not a dog on a chain store)exclusive ,it ships from UK.
      I also want the red, but its only available to indie stores(thank goodness for Rough Trade NYC)
      No where on earth can I order the red and clear together at one outlet
      I'm paying more in postage and shipping than for the damn record...
      Seriously this is the times when I wish I lived across the pond.....
      At least i could drive to get them

      Please someone tell me i got this wrong and guide me in the right direction to where only one transaction is needed
