Morrissey Central "Rebels Without Applause" (November 25, 2022)

First 'single' release in exactly three years.

Morrissey's Rebels Without Applause is available today worldwide (including Britain) on Spotify, courtesy of Capitol Records. The track is produced by Andrew Watt.
This is Morrissey's first 'single' release since 'It's Over', taken from the 'California Son' album in November 2019. 'It's Over' peaked at number 1 in the UK vinyl chart.

Morrissey's next live appearance is on Monday, 28 November at The Anthem in Washington DC.

Just to help Central:
It's Over was released as an instant grat & pre-order bonus - February 25/26, 2019 (followed by Morning Starship - both getting airplay).
It's Over was then nightmarishly released as a physical 7" - (initially December 20, 2019) January 24, 2020.
The first actual "single" from California Son was Wedding Bell Blues 7" - May 10, 2019.

I am so glad someone else sees it the same way.
Had to come to a morrissey fan message board to be convinced to not like morrissey's new single. He really is the pope of mope and the hardcore fans prove it 😂
Disappointment came to me and booted me and bruised and hurt me

This quote perfectly describes my feelings about the song that seemed to be really cool for a few months. Yes , there are things worse in life than that damn auto-tune but ...
