Deal with Penguin collapses...

Morrissey has postponed the publication of his autobiography with Penguin due to a disagreement over content. It's been a year to forget for Morrissey.

The singer has been plagued with health issues, forcing a number of postponements - most recently resulting in the cancellation of a South American tour. Managing to release the live document 'Morrissey 25: Live From Hollywood High' the indie icon also pledged to complete his autobiography. 

Due to appear on Monday (September 16th) the plan has been scrapped due to a disagreement with publishers Penguin. A short statement has just appeared on fan site True To You:

"Although Morrissey's Autobiography was set to be available throughout the UK on September 16th, a last-minute content disagreement between Penguin Books and Morrissey has caused the venture to collapse. No review copies were printed, and Morrissey is now in search of a new publisher."
