    Wedding Bell Blues was played earlier today on the Ken Bruce show as a world exclusive.
    Digital versions and a YouTube video followed thereafter.
    It is reportedly the 22 year anniversary of Laura Nyro's passing today also (thanks Anon for the info).

      I love this! Morrissey's voice is so warm and lush - makes me wish I was Bill... I'm so looking forward to this album!

      Armatopia is very reminiscent of New Order in the 80s to me, which sort of takes us back to Electronic times. Catchy tune and decent singing.

      it doesn’t feel quite right listening to this with my fathers name being william/bill, what with mozza singing it in such a fruity voice but nonetheless it’s very smooth and enjoyable

      I think Morrissey is having a lot of fun with this song. He's turned it into a swinging camp romp, the artistry and the skill lies is in the phasing which skips and sails effortlessly. Its a great vocal performances right to the end.

      "OH BILL COME-ON BILL........."

      A couple of poor quality pics circulating with website articles (non-English).


      From the Ramones event by looks of it.

      A better question is who is pawing Moz’s left breast?

      I believe that's Linda Ramone's hand (pictured left).

      There’ll be backup singers on this tour.

      Morrissey hasn’t been able to pull off the falsetto live in 30 years. Studio does wonders for an old karaoke singer. ;)

      It was a shotgun wedding...

      This seems like a fun song... it's Morrissey not taking himself too seriously. ‘


      Exactly! and the album as a whole is gonna be an interesting listen, can’t wait.

      Love the layers of backing vocals on this, and the playful piano, a real romp!

      You know they were having fun in the studio with this one. And Morrissey has probably been singing this one in the shower since it was originally released.

      Lighten up, folks.

      I think he just likes to walk around with an arm permanently attached to his breast. Trend setter!
