Morrissey Autobiography: Release Date Confirmed


Morrissey's autobiography is coming out after all.

A later "clarification" was then issued confirming that the contract between the singer and the publisher remained and they intended to publish the book in the coming weeks.

And, true to their word, whatever the issues were they seem to have been resolved.

A statement on has announced that Autobiography is being published on October 17 in the UK, Commonwealth and Europe by Penguin Classics.
