Morrissey has confirmed details of the 20th anniversary reissue of his 1994 album 'Vauxhall And I'.

The '20th Anniversary Definitive Master' will be released on June 2. Its second disc comprises a 14-song concert recorded at London's Theatre Royal Drury Lane on February 26, 1995.

The live album features five songs from 'Vauxhall And I', plus non-album single 'Boxers' and a cover of Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini’s 'Moon River', which won the Best Original Song Oscar in 1962 after it was featured in Breakfast At Tiffany's.

On its release in March 1994, 'Vauxhall And I' reached Number One in the UK and Number 46 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US. It features the singles ‘The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get’, ‘Hold On To Your Friends’ and ‘Now My Heart Is Full’.

The reissue is expected to be followed shortly afterwards by Morrissey's new album 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business'. Morrissey’s 10th solo album, it's his first since 2009's 'Years Of Refusal' and was recorded in France with producer Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, The Killers). Due out in late June/early July, it's the first album of Morrissey’s new deal with Capitol Records subsidiary Harvest.

Morrissey released his autobiography in October 2013, and recently stated he is "halfway through" writing his first novel.

As revealed in February, veteran singers Sir Tom Jones and Sir Cliff Richard support Morrissey at concerts in the US in May.

Morrissey will play:

Los Angeles Sports Arena (May 10)
Brooklyn Barclays Center (June 21)
