From the Jan. 2, 2020 post on Morrissey Central: "It is now reported that the official BMG release date for Morrissey's "It's Over" is January 24th, by which time "Morrissey will be 116 years old" (secret source.)"

December 20 finally sees the UK release of the 7" blue vinyl of It's Over.
There is no matrix message on this record.
The word 'stereo' is replaced by 'rodeo' on the B-side (as pictured).
It features a cover of Tim Buckley's "It Happens Every Time".

Information about dates/stock outside of HMV and European sellers isn't currently available other than the release dates already quoted on their sites.

The convoluted It's Over timeline from announcement to release:
  • February 25, 2019 - appears on Spotify.
  • February 26, 2019 - released digitally as an 'instant grat' & pre-order bonus prior to California Son (radio airplay of the track especially in the UK). Physical single is mentioned (with Brow Of My Beloved as B-side - Mitchum green, red & white cover shown).
  • March 27, 2019 - Central shares an unofficial It's Over video.
  • September 18, 2019 - Central inform us of a new single - no release date given (featuring Mitchum on the 7" with green, red & white font/colour)
  • October 1, 2019 - "heartbreaking" news that BMG have shelved the single (7" pictured again as per September 18).
  • October 9, 2019 - Central states the single will be released "in the second week of November"

  • November 12, placeholder spotted on UK Amazon - also on the Italian Amazon with November 29 as a release date (showing the original artwork and fonts as per September 18).
  • November 14, 2019 - the single appears on the Warner's portal site with product number "4050538559873" (seen with my own eyes). The single has not been listed on any Warners buying in sheets throughout the year - especially November or December so no indie shops are aware of it officially as the sheets dictate what is available to buy.

  • December 20, 2019 - Morrissey via Central's "… AND ‘IT’S OVER’ CAME TUMBLING AFTER." stated the single was: "spotted in a couple of HMV's - six weeks after its release date."
  • December 25, 2019 - The Krays are pictured 'finding' copies of the single in a Central post entitled: "Miracle".
  • December 27, 2019 - It's Over enters the UK vinyl singles chart at #2 on HMV sales alone.

Can’t you just scroll by my posts if you find them so illiterate? I would say that you are the one who needs to find something more productive to do since you are the one spending your time responding to someone without adding anything argumentative on the subject matter of the original post and instead engage in poor attempts to be cleaver with adolescent “window licking” comments.

See? Understand? Get the irony? You literally wasted time responding to me - when you could have been more productive doing something else. Maybe next time think things through before you post nonsense. And if you want to be more productive, don’t bother to respond to a post by telling the poster to be more productive. Good grief.
Nah. I consider that calling you out as an illiterate, boring, thick-as-shit moron is fulfilling a public service...well worth 2 minutes of my valuable time. Now, get back to those windows!

Sure. Calling someone you don’t know, and won’t meet, vulgar names is a “public service”? Maybe you should get a mental health screening? You appear to have deep seated, anger issues mate. Good luck to you in your little angry, vulgar world. Dignity appears to be absent from you.

I expect the fact the film is called The Lusty Men might have something to do with it.
I’ve had a message from Amazon, saying there is a delay to my delivery of It’s Over. I suspect they’ve over sold it, and the delay will end up being a cancellation of the order.

Luckily I bought it from a record shop, too, on Friday.

Did you receive your Amazon copy?

To quote one of your own moronic posts:

"Just because Morrissey records a song with an African American doesn’t mean he isn’t racist. He is."

I think it might help you greatly if you develop a sense of self-awareness.

Anyway, you are boring me now. Bye.

I see It's Over has climbed back up vinyl singles chart from no.36 to no.2 after 'official' release on 24th only to be kept of no.1 again by 'Wrong' Direction reject Hairy Piles.
