Morrissey to write autobiography

Former Smiths singer set to pen his memoirs

Morrissey has revealed that he is set to write his autobiography.

The former Smiths singer told Janice Long on BBC Radio 2 that the book would span his career in the music industry, although he did not reveal how far through writing it he was or when he hoped to release it.

“So much crap is written about me, it’s hard to live with sometimes,” he said. “It all gets burned down in history and becomes a part of your legacy.”

Morrissey went on to claim that his forthcoming new album, ‘Year Of Refusal’, was his best album yet.

“It’s fantastically strong,” he said. “It’s very, very strong and it’s interesting for me after all these years, but it’s the strongest.”

The album is set to be released in February.
