Morrissey announces new album 'World Peace Is None of Your Business'

It's been five years since Morrissey's last solo album, but that hasn't mellowed his acerbic wit by any means.

The famously cantankerous singer has announced a title and release date for his new album. It's called "World Peace Is None of Your Business," according to Pitchfork and the authoritative Moz fansite True to You.

The site reports that the album is expected out sometime early this summer, on Harvest Records, the recently revived Capitol imprint that signed Morrissey in January.

The album will have 12 tracks, and was produced by longtime collaborator Joe Chiccarelli, noted for his work with Beck and the White Stripes. It's been half a decade since his last solo effort, 2009's "Years of Refusal."

Morrissey's been far from idle, however. His memoir "Autobiography" arrived to great acclaim (and some ribbing) on the Penguin Classics imprint in the U.K. in October. It came out in America in December.

The LP is expected to arrive after a long run of touring that will bring Moz to the L.A. Sports Arena on May 10. His most recent sold-out Staples Center date came with a bit of controversy over the menu options at Staples Center, as the famously vegan singer insisted the venue go meat-free for the night.
