Morrissey has called the Twitter account that was set up in his name "bogus".

Writing in a statement posted on fan forum True To You, Morrissey denied that he posted his first official tweet earlier this week, saying:

I would like to stress that I do not have either a Twitter or a Facebook account. I gather that a Twitter account has been opened in my name - as 'It's Morrissey' - but it is NOT Morrissey. I do not know who has opened this recent Twitter account, but please be aware that it is bogus. That's, of course, if you should remotely care. Untwitterably yours, MORRISSEY.


On May 14 a tweet was sent out by the verified Morrissey account @itsmorrissey on Twitter, reading: "Hello. Testing, 1, 2, 3. Planet Earth, are you there? One can only hope...". Four more tweets have since been posted, with tour details and a tweet which read: "Twitter is the perfect metaphor for...something. Dunno what."

Morrissey recently revealed the title track from his new album 'World Peace Is None of Your Business'. The song is the first to be taken from Morrissey's forthcoming solo album of the same name and is available to download immediately for those who pre-order the record.

The album will be released on July 14 and includes 'Neal Cassady Drops Dead', 'Earth Is The Loneliest Planet' and 'Kick The Bride Down The Aisle'. Scroll down to see the full tracklisting.

The singer, who released his autobiography in October 2013, has signed a new, worldwide record deal with Universal Music's US-based Harvest Records for the release of his 10th studio album. All 12 tracks were produced by Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, The Killers) in France.
