Morrissey performs ‘Kiss Me A Lot’ on James Corden’s US chat show

Singer brings 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business' track to 'The Late Late Show'

Morrissey appeared on The Late Late Show to perform his song ‘Kiss Me A Lot’ last night (August 18).

The singer was a guest on James Corden’s show and performed the song, which appeared on 2014 album ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business’.

In August 2014, Morrissey claimed there was no interest from TV producers in having him perform on their shows.

“In answer to many people who have asked, I should like to finally make it clear that I have not received any television invitations – worldwide! – to either discuss ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business’, or even to sing any songs from the album,” he wrote at the time. He has since appeared on The Tonight Show and now Corden’s chat show.

Earlier this month, demo recordings from the sessions of Morrissey’s 2009 album ‘Years Of Refusal’ surfaced online. The three demos, which are believed to date back to 2008 and are previously unheard, were shared online by fansite True To You.

The “initial run-throughs” are for the songs ‘Something Is Squeezing My Skull’, ‘One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell’ and ‘Mama Lay Softly On The Riverbed’, all of which later made it onto the album in re-recorded form. Listen below.

‘Years Of Refusal’ was Morrissey’s ninth solo album and followed 2006’s ‘Ringleader Of The Tormentors’. It was the first Morrissey album since 1992’s ‘Your Arsenal’ not to feature long-time bandmate Alain Whyte on guitar.
