Information

World Peace Is None Of Your Business is Morrissey's tenth solo album. The album was released on 14 July 2014 by Harvest Records. Produced by Joe Chiccarelli and co-written by Boz Boorer, Jesse Tobias and newcomer Gustavo Manzur, the album yielded 4 digital singles - World Peace Is None Of Your Business, Istanbul, Earth Is The Loneliest Planet and The Bullfighter Dies.

Recording

Following the release of 2009's Years Of Refusal, Morrissey found himself without a recording contract. After a 5 year wait, Morrissey announced on 15 January 2014 that he had signed a two-album deal with Capitol Music and would commence the recording of his new album on 1 February 2014 in France with producer Joe Chiccarelli. On 7 March 2014 it was announced that the forthcoming album was finished, provisionally set for a late June/early July release through the Harvest Records label, and was entitled World Peace Is None Of Your Business.

Release

Prior to the release of World Peace Is None Of Your Business, Morrissey released the digital single "World Peace Is None Of Your Business" on 13 May 2014, which subsequently reached the #83 slot in the UK charts. Digital copies of the single were also given away as a free bonus for pre-ordering the album.
