Morrissey curates tracklist and artwork for new Ramones compilation

Frontman compiles new album 'Best Of The Ramones'

Morrissey has reportedly compiled the tracklisting for a new compilation album from the Ramones.

A post on True To You states that the former Smiths frontman will put out the forthcoming ‘Best Of The Ramones’ album on behalf of Sire-Rhino. The album artwork, which can be seen above, was also selected by Morrissey.

There is no confirmed tracklist or release date for the album as yet. The fansite post states that, “Morrissey is thankful to the Ramones’ management for this invitation”.

‘Best Of The Ramones’ will be the first release of Ramones material following the death of Tommy Ramone in July. Ramone died in a hospice on July 11 following treatment for bile duct cancer. His death marked the passing of the last founding member of the Ramones.

Meanwhile, Morrissey will headline London’s O2 Arena in November as part of a wider European tour. The singer will play in the capital on November 29 with the date being his only scheduled UK gig of 2014 so far.
