OH CHRIST!

The star does it just in time for Christmas too…

Morrissey has announced that he will release his new single ’I HAVE FORGIVEN JESUS’ on December 13.

The track will be the singer’s fourth this year and will come backed by ’Slum Mums’ and ’The Public Image’ on the maxi-CD version.

A recording of ’No One Can Hold A Candle To You’ (a cover of the Raymonde song featured on the Morrissey ’Songs To Save Your Life’ NME cover-mount CD earlier this year) will be available with the 7″ and mini-CD.

Morrissey will round off his comeback year with a set of live dates next month. He will play:

Glasgow SECC (December 13)

Birmingham NIA (14)

Brighton Centre (17)

London Earl’s Court (18)
