Morrissey

We pause on this Thanksgiving to catch up on all the Morrissey news from the past few days, because if we’re thankful for anything, it’s the fact that Moz knows how to keep a music-news website busy. This week, he’s revealed details of his “Satellite of Love” single, announced he’ll perform in Norway and gone off on a rant about Thanksgiving turkeys.

Let’s dig in:

  • Morrissey revealed that his live cover of “Satellite of Love” — out next week digitally, then Jan. 28 on vinyl — will be backed by Your Arsenal opener “You’re Going to Need Someone On Your Side,” plus, depending on the format, a variety of live cuts recorded in 2008, including a cover of the Buzzcocks’ “You Say You Don’t Love Me” and The Smiths’ “Vicar in a Tutu.” Details below.
  • The former Smiths frontman also announce he’ll perform in Oslo, Norway, on Dec. 11, singing three songs at the Nobel Peace Prize event.
  • And, finally, in a letter titled “Thankskilling,” Morrissey slams President Barack Obama for his “embarrassingly stupid White House ‘turkey pardon’.” Read the full missive at True To You.
