      The successful tour has certainly given Moz leverage over BMG in re-releasing "It's Over". Hoping to hear of the release date for next album soon.

      M needs a comms strategy bigly. But what do I know. I'm only the BEST in the game.

      This is (at last ) a vinyl /CD I want to buy as soon as possible. Two great songs and two great covers consequently. All the recent outings were below the par .Hope they 'll choose a nice artwork ((NOT a SER one) with Nando 's son on it!!!!

      I agree that Morrissey's tendency to air his "dirty laundry" regarding record company disputes ultimately hurts more than it helps him (it certainly fuels the reputation that he's unmanageable and difficult to work with). Although in this case, it appears to have worked in his favor: single off - now single on. Timing-wise, with the tour ending before the single's release and a new album already done, it doesn't seem all that important to get another single off California Son (perhaps that's why BMG were against it?). That's not a knock against CS - I'm just more interested in what's next.

      But one should choose one's battles. Is a post-album vinyl single really worth this hassle? Does it improve his relations with BMG and affect the release of the 2020 album in any positive way?

      Second week of November, but still not listed on Amazon! So again delayed or cancelled, I guess.

      It‘s listed now on Amazon with the ASIN B07ZW9PY8Q, but without a release date yet.

      Also on Amazon.FR/DE/IT...
      The Italian Amazon site lists the release date as 29th of November.
      I'm sceptical of this as there is no listing on any indie site yet and the Warner's music release sheets are already in to December.
      Happy to be wrong,

      Edit: should add - Amazon have used the 'old' artwork (not the blue version) and was maybe an oversight on their part?

      New crop / moved lettering artwork via an Italian record site:


      (Apologies - only a small image currently)

      The original image on Morrissey Central (Oct. 12, 2019):


      Update (Nov. 14):

      Although this release isn't on the indie store Warners release sheets for the 6th, 13th or 20th of December - it is showing on the Warner's sales portal with a release date of December 13th.
      The Warner's product number is: "4050538559873".
      If searched for, this code gets 2 hits for Italian record shops:

      Both with changed artwork and cite a December 13th release date too.

      I'm sure there will be more details to follow and as there isn't 100% certainty (which I prefer when it comes to people spending their money), please appreciate this information could change.
      That said, this the most tangible news about the single to surface.
      A special thanks to my record store insider - thank you for your time & help.

      So are we still getting Rainbow Valley?
      Or It Happens Every Time?

      Rainbow Valley = ?
      It Happens Every Time = B-side of the 7" above.

      Wasn’t Rainbow Valley listed as one of the B-sides this Summer?
      Would love to hear Moz’s version of that great song.
