Morrissey's label Harvest Record have denied reports that they have dropped the singer.

A post on Morrissey fansite True To You last week (August 8) stated that the singer and his label had parted ways.

However, Billboard has received a denial from Harvest, who state that they have a two-album deal with Morrissey. The first album under that deal was this year's 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business'.

The original post on True To You read: "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 at the time, 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 a separate update posted on True To You.

Meanwhile, in his only interview of 2014 Morrissey stated his belief that Jamie Oliver should be "gassed by Princess Anne" and urged Scottish voters to separate from the rest of the UK.
