Morrissey has revealed that his new studio album is "ready" – but he still hasn't got a record label to release it on yet.

The former Smiths singer suggested that his first new album since 2009 was in the bag and that he was getting a touch frustrated at not having sorted out how to get it in the shops.

"The follow-up to [last album] 'Years Of Refusal' is ready and fluttering wildly against the bars," he wrote in a statement to True-to-you.net. There is still no record label and the years shuffle like cards. My talents do not lie in DIY."



Morrissey also mentioned his recent BBC Radio 4 interview, in which he branded the British Royal Family "benefit scroungers" ahead of Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding, claiming the interview had been heavily edited.

"If my interview sounded chopped and cropped, that's because it was," he wrote. "I had spoken fluently about the royal dreading, but an Iranian censorship confiscated all of my views. It is distressing, but in all manner of British media in 2011 we are only allowed to hear the same old thoughts and feelings expressed over and over and over again."

Meanwhile, the singer has recently announced details of three new live dates for July. He'll play the Stoke Victoria Hall on July 5, the O2 Academy Leeds on July 7 and Middlesbrough Town Hall on July 8.

Tickets go on sale on Friday (May 13) at 9am (BST). To check the availability of Morrissey tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
