Morrissey stars in spoken word promo for 'The Bullfighter Dies'

His record label also comment on the star's 'bogus' Twitter account - which has now been deleted

Morrissey stars in a spoken word promo for the song 'The Bullfighter Dies', which features on his forthcoming new album, 'World Peace Is None of Your Business'.

Click above to watch the video, which follows a similar promo for a spoken word version of the album's title track featuring Nancy Sinatra. The album will be released on July 14 and also includes 'Neal Cassady Drops Dead', 'Earth Is The Loneliest Planet' and 'Kick The Bride Down The Aisle'. Scroll down to see the full tracklisting.

Meanwhile, Morrissey's record label Harvest Records have commented on the Twitter account that was recently used in Morrissey's name, which the singer went on to call 'bogus'. "We’ve taken over @itsmorrissey to protect it from interlopers. Alas, it's already time to bid farewell to the account," wrote the label. The account has now been deleted.

Morrissey called the Twitter account that was set up in his name "bogus", denying that he was now tweeting. Writing in a statement posted on fan forum True To You, Morrissey said:

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 were since been posted, with tour details and a tweet which read: "Twitter is the perfect metaphor for...something. Dunno what."

The 'World Peace Is None of Your Business' tracklisting is:

'World Peace Is None Of Your Business'
'Neal Cassady Drops Dead'
'Istanbul'
'I'm Not A Man'
'Earth Is The Loneliest Planet'
'Staircase At The University'
'The Bullfighter Dies'
'Kiss Me A Lot'
'Smiler With Knife'
'Kick The Bride Down the Aisle'
'Mountjoy'
'Oboe Concerto'
