Last month, Morrissey debuted ‘Love Is On Its Way Out’, the latest track from his 13th solo album.

The new offering from The Smiths legend’s forthcoming record ‘I Am Not A Dog On A Chain‘ hears him show off his sombre side as he laments the state of the world.

“Did you see the nerve gas? Children crying/ Did you see the sad rich, hunting down, shooting down elephants and lions?” he croons on the new track.

Meanwhile, Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong has responded to the criticism he previously faced after working with Morrissey.
