99 pence at the ready...

Just noticed the 45rpm...um...that might be a few days off yet 'cause I'm sure it's digital.

What happened to relatable singles? About social situations, universal themes, etc. Every single lately is about travel in cities no one's been to, or the endless torment of fame/the biz.

Nice image, but the typography on this is absolutely shocking - looks like it has been slapped on.

I’m a designer by trade and the design of this album and singles have been very poor IMO. I winced when I saw that contrived photoshop job of the boy and the axe (not to mention the High School Americanism).

Moz used to be a standard bearer for careful and well thought out covers. What has happened? Looks like this lot were done in Word for Windows...

Age beat narcissism now I guess...

How many of the regulars are going to start wearing the plastic bag ensemble to shows? I would myself, but I think the sight of my moobs might put Morrissey off.

Why oh why wasn't the same art-house nouse utilised for the album sleeve!? That single cover is totally fantastic :D

It a good cover. Hopefully some clever person here will adapt it so some of us can use it as the album sleeve.

Not only is the actual album sleeve the worst I’ve ever seen on a Morrissey release it’s one of the worst album sleeves I’ve ever seen full stop. It screams of “I don’t care anymore.”

Here you go (not so clever though)...

Does that 45rpm hint at it being a physical item or is just a tease?

"Stop watching the news. Because the news contrives to frighten you.
It makes yo feel small and alone. It makes you feel your mind isn't your own."

Can you not related to that a little?

Thank you. :)
A slightly more intricate attempt...

That's much better. Unfortunately loads of places wouldn't sell the album, as they find ladies nipples more offensive than kids with Toys R Us axes. Such is the whacky world we live in.

Just listened. It’s not very good and an odd choice for a ‘single’.

He’s definitely singing ‘exit’, not ‘Brexit’...

So far...

I wish you lonely > STDIB > Jacky’s only happy
