Morrissey Reasserts That He Has Been Dropped From His Label

Morrissey new tour datesEven something as simple as a record contract isn’t simple when Morrissey is involved. Two weeks after reports surfaced that he had been dropped from Harvest Records after publicly criticizing them and one week after sources at Harvest refuted those claims, Morrissey is once again asserting that Harvest Records has severed ties with him. This is probably going to get worse before it gets better.

The Morrissey fan site True To You–on which Morrissey occasionally releases official statements–is refuting the Billboard story that, in turn, refuted their news of Morrissey’s departure from Harvest. While True To You doesn’t directly quote the Moz or his representatives, they assert that both Morrissey and his lawyer “are in possession of e-mails from [Harvest Records chief] Steve Barnett and Mr. Barnett’s personal assistant, both of whom confirm that Captiol-Harvest have ended their relationship with Morrissey.” The statement goes further to assert that Morrissey never actually signed a record contract with Harvest to begin with and that his new album, World Peace Is None Of Your Business, is owned solely by him.

Representatives from Harvest Records have not responded to these claims, but we can only assume that they’ll have a response some time soon. Can’t we all just get along?

  1. […] It’s no secret that we love Alexis P. Suter. She’s one of the truly remarkable talents in blues today. Her incredible contralto voice not only makes her a distinct performer, but it infuses her songs with ample amounts of soul and fire. It’s little wonder that she won the approval of the late, great Levon Helm and that of the legendary B.B. King, with whom she has shared the stage more than once. Now, she’ll be gracing the stage of the club that bears Mr. King’s name, and we couldn’t be happier. This is how the blues was meant to sound.
