A mere three weeks after the release of his latest album, World Peace Is None Of Your Business, the singer's relationship with Harvest Records appears to have ended.
A statement issued by his usual mouthpiece, the website True To You, says:
"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."
Only last week, the singer commented on his label's apparent reluctance to produce relevant videos for tracks from World Peace Is None Of Your Business... despite a number of "poetry" clips being produced for various tracks.
Meanwhile, Morrissey has told the Irish music magazine Hot Press that he wishes Jamie Oliver would be killed off in the same way as the celebrity chef treats animals in his cooking.
"It would be a great help if Princess Anne gassed Jamie Oliver,” he said. “He's killed more animals than McDonald's.”
