Published Aug 25, 2014Aside from the entertaining drama of it all, no news has been good news from Morrissey as of late. Aside from recent, confusing label woes, the artist has had plenty of other drama in his life. Thankfully, the latest update from Moz is a positive one.
Delivering the news via the True to You fansite, as he always does, Morrissey revealed that he's been asked to compile a new greatest-hits album from the Ramones.
The release will arrive on CD and LP via Sire/Rhino.
Morrissey, a lifelong punk fan and Ramones fanatic, hand-picked all of the songs on the album, as well as its cover image (available above). The compilation will serve as an official Ramones release of sorts, as he was asked by the top brass. "Morrissey is thankful to the Ramones management for this invitation," the statement says.
Stay tuned for more information on Best of the Ramones, including a release date and tracklisting, as it becomes available.
