Morrissey Continues Label Fight

Maintains ownership of 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business'
Morrissey

Marking his triumphant return with Top Ten album 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business', Morrissey appeared to be on - relatively speaking - fine form.

Since then, the singer's relationship with label Capitol-Harvest has soured. Posting on fansite True To You, Morrissey claimed to have been dropped by the label without explanation.

Following this, the label pushed the view that Morrissey had not been dropped. In response, Morrissey has issued another statement claiming to have hard evidence of all communication between himself and the label.

It reads:

In response to Andrew Flanagan's incorrect report for Billboard online (15 August 2014), both Morrissey and Morrissey's lawyer are in possession of email correspondence from Steve Barnett (head of Capitol-Harvest Records), and also from Steve Barnett's personal assistant, both of whom confirm that Capitol-Harvest have ended their relationship with Morrissey. No recording Agreement with Capitol-Harvest was ever signed by Morrissey, and Morrissey retains full ownership of World Peace is None Of Your Business. Contrary to the assured Billboard report, Capitol-Harvest have very clearly stated that they would have no interest in licensing a second album by Morrissey. Russells (London), who represent Morrissey, are presently concluding Morrissey's relationship with Harvest Records.

Once again, Morrissey is in search of a new label.
