Morrissey tonight announced that he will return to the U.S. this June and July to continue promoting his withdrawn album World Peace Is None of Your Business with a new 18-date tour of theaters, arenas and amphitheaters, a trek that includes a stop at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

As promised earlier this month, cancellation-prone Morrissey is returning to the road this fall — he’s just announced 18 new tour dates in Europe this October and November — although that trek now comes in support of an album that no longer has a record label or is even available digitally.

Morrissey’s been teasing the hell out of his brand-new album World Peace Is None Of Your Business in the weeks ahead of its July 15 release, with full-track previews, spoken-word promotional videos and, perhaps not as effectively, an aborted U.S. tour. Now, though, comes the moment of truth.
The opening track and lead single off Morrissey’s forthcoming album World Peace is None of Your Business has just gone on sale via iTunes and other digital retailers, and accompanying the track in the iTunes Music Store is a video of Moz performing a solemn, spoken-word rendition of the song.
With Morrissey’s tour under way, despite a bit of a bumpy start, it’s time for some new music — and it appears we’ll hear the title track off Moz’s upcoming album World Peace is None of Your Business when it’s released Tuesday as a single in the U.K. The song has has popped up on Amazon.co.uk as a digital single.

Morrissey will follow up his just-released reissue of 1992’s Your Arsenal with a new remastered edition of that album’s follow-up — Vauhxall and I, released exactly 20 years ago today — on June 2, the singer announced today via fansite True To You. The album is remastered by Bill Inglot.
