The news of Mozza's new album hasn't gone by without any controversy, however, with HMV having to deny they were refusing to sell Morrissey's new album due to its artwork.
Taking to Twitter, the company wrote: "Contrary to reports, hmv have not refused to stock the new Morrissey album."
They continued: "BMG shared the artwork with us last week and we are looking forward to continuing to work with BMG on the forthcoming release.
"For the second time this year it appears Morrissey's camp have made a statement about hmv without being fully aware of the facts."
The statement follows the posting of the artwork by Morrissey's childhood friend James Maker, who claimed: “I publish this in support of a friend, and in the cause of democracy. Trade and Retail* have informed BMG that they will refuse to handle Morrissey’s new album, ‘Low in High School’ on the grounds that the sleeve art is “offensive”. Thus, the entire campaign is in jeopardy unless Morrissey and his record company rethink the album cover. x
(* The HMV chain refuse to stock it.)”
Maker also previously slammed Morrissey biopic, England Is Mine, as "historical fiction", writing in a now deleted post on his "Facebook page: "According to the trailer of 'England Is Mine', Morrissey was an autistic, retiring creature with both curly hair and a natural crimp, who had to be physically pushed into becoming a singer by a well-meaning friend (one who did not actually communicate with Morrissey throughout The Smiths' success)."
