Morrissey has reportedly been dropped by his label, Harvest Records.

According to a post on Morrissey fansite True To You, the singer and his label have parted ways. The post reads: "Three weeks after the release of Morrissey's World Peace Is None Of Your Business (#2 UK, #14 US), Capitol Records/Harvest have ended their relationship with Morrissey, as directed by label boss Steve Barnett. Morrissey is once again in search of a record label."

Asked for confirmation, a spokesperson for Morrissey said: "no comment".

The news comes after Morrissey appeared to criticise his label, with the singer hinting at "public deception" in the music industry in an update posted on True To You earlier this week.

The post saw the former Smiths frontman praising three fans who made their own videos for songs from his latest album, 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business'. "These videos fully understand the intent of the song, and I am relieved that these films exist," he stated.

However, he went on to say: "A similar document ought to have been harvested by the record label, but please understand that the pop or rock industry can be as dedicated to perpetuating public deception as the world of politics itself."

Meanwhile, Morrissey has stated that Jamie Oliver should be "gassed by Princess Anne" and urged Scottish voters to separate from the rest of the UK in a typically outspoken interview in Irish publication Hot Press.

Urging Scottish voters to Vote Yes in the September referendum, Morrissey said: "They must cut ties with the United King-dumb. I love Scotland, and I love the Scottish spirit and they do not need Westminster in the least."
