While Morrissey isn’t exactly happy with his current home, Harvest Records — the former Smiths frontman recently thanked fans for making the music video his label couldn’t be bothered with — a True To You report claiming that the chairman/CEO of Capitol Music dropped the singer has been deemed false by Billboard. A source close to Harvest’s parent company told the trade magazine that his contract includes two albums, the first of which was this summer’s World Peace Is None of Your Business.
When Wondering Sound reached out to Harvest, they declined to comment on the matter. Which kinda makes you wonder: Maybe the two parties severed their ties a tad bit early, much like another recent Harvest signing — Death Grips. The power trio split up last month and walked away from a prime opening slot for Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden, leaving their future with Harvest null and void outside of a double LP that’ll be delivered later this year, The Powers That Be.
