Release Information

In a press release, Polydor UK have announced that Morrissey's new single, "All You Need Is Me," will be released on Decca/Polydor on 19 May in the UK.

"All You Need Is Me" is one of the new songs to have graced Morrissey's set lists at recent concerts. He also played the song earlier this year on Later...With Jools Holland, alongside other new songs - "That's How People Grow Up" and "Something Is Squeezing My Skull" - and his classic "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys."

The new single will be available on CD and two 7" vinyl formats. Two of the B-sides - "Children In Pieces" and "My Dearest Love" - are new songs recorded in Los Angeles with composer Gustavo Santaolalla, who has won Oscars for his music for the films Brokeback Mountain and Babel, as well as BAFTAs for his music for the films The Motorcycle Diaries and Babel. The new songs feature additional production and were mixed by Jerry Finn, producer of 2004's widely acclaimed UK #2 album You Are The Quarry, who has also produced the A-side "All You Need Is Me." A third B-side is a cover version of the David Bowie song "Drive-in Saturday." The cover version was recorded live during Morrissey's North American tour in 2007.
