Morrissey Reportedly Dropped From Record Label
Published Aug 10, 2014Following the release of last month's World Peace Is None of Your Business, indie pop icon Morrissey has continued his affront on really any sort of peace, with rant after rant after rant. Last week, he took his record label to task, accusing them of not promoting his latest album correctly. Now, he's reportedly been dropped.
In an open letter posted to True to You last week, Morrissey criticized his labels, Harvest Records and Capitol, for their perceived lack of help in promoting the record, including the fact that they didn't finance a video.
Rather than chalk it up to Moz being Moz, the labels have taken action. True to You now reports that Morrissey has been dropped.
The following statement was posted to the site:
Three weeks after the release of Morrissey's World Peace Is None Of Your Business (#2 UK, #14 US), Capitol Records/Harvest have ended their relationship with Morrissey, as directed by label boss Steve Barnett. Morrissey is once again in search of a record label.
Of course, this isn't the first controversy from Morrissey. In recent weeks, he's cancelled tour dates, publicly blasted his would-be tourmate and been accused of calling out a hit on a fan.
