Agreed - I think he would announce a new label in addition to a single. This may very well be a digital-only release. Maybe he's finally testing the waters on DIY releases?It's possible he is doing a self-release. I suggest that as a possibility because if there was a label signing I think that would have been reported.
As bitchy as the comment is , you are 100% correct99.3% of online art is guff. Including the Burt image above. I equate that dross to people sitting at their computers screaming, 'MORRISSEY! LOOK OVER HERE! LOOK WHAT I'VE MADE FOR YOUUU!!!'. And of course team Moz obliges. Because the crap promotes Moz who then uses it to promote himself on his blog.
@ anybody Find a pic of someone called Veronica (Veronica Blume will do), slap her on (the patio) a fake cover with 'Morrissey'on the cover, and we'll promote it here and see if team moz takes the bait! Which they will!
Callate tontoEl 99,3% del arte en línea es una tontería. Incluyendo la imagen de Burt arriba. Comparo esa escoria con la gente sentada frente a sus computadoras gritando: '¡MORRISSEY! ¡MIRA AQUÍ! MIRA LO QUE HE HECHO PARA TIUU!!!'. Y, por supuesto, el equipo Moz está de acuerdo. Porque la basura promociona a Moz, quien luego la usa para promocionarse a sí mismo en su blog.
@ cualquiera Encuentre una foto de alguien llamada Veronica (Veronica Blume servirá), colóquela (en el patio) con una portada falsa con 'Morrissey' en la portada, y la promocionaremos aquí y veremos si el equipo moz muerde el anzuelo. ¡Que lo harán!
So, you think this sleeve - a moody image of Coltrane tinted blue (an obvious reference to the album title - I'm surprised John Boy isn't wearing a train drivers cap to really drive the point home) is in the same 'style' as, say, the Hand In Glove or Meat Is Murder sleeve? There's more to art than whether you use a duotone image or not.Some of them are ok. Others not so much. You have to understand that they weren't original. Reid Miles had done that style with John Coltrane's Blue Train:

Sorry, not sure I understand. You hope the BOT cover does not change but you also think it's dreadful?The only thing I am afraid of is that the Bonfire cover does not look like it was presented a year ago. It is dreadful . Anyway, Morrissey hasn't had run of luck with album covers lately ( CS and DOG )
If Coltrane was in the buff, you might have a point. No idea why you've posted this as a reply. It adds nothing to your argument.
Ah, now I see. Morrissey said to the man in the buff, 'that's great, cute pose, cheeks are looking peachy, but can you give it a bit more Sonny Rollins'.That isn't Coltrane. That, is Sonny Rollins.
Look at the composition of the Rollins cover. Look at the pose. Now look at the composition of The Smiths cover.
