Morrissey stabs at our hearts with 'Swords'
U.S. tour follows new collection of B-sides
Mope meister Morrissey will release "Swords," a collection of B-sides, on Nov. 3.
The tunes are culled from the back sides of the singles that were released from 2004's "You Are the Quarry," 2006's "Ringleader of the Tormentors" and "Years of Refusal." Included are "Munich Air Disaster 1958," about Manchester United soccer players killed in a crash, and a live version of David Bowie's "Drive-In Saturday." Guests include Chrissie Hynde on "Shame is the Name."
The release comes in a year that has seen Morrissey almost on a tear to tour and spread his music. He's been on a seemingly endless tour. In fact, "Swords" comes in a limited edition package that includes a CD of songs from Morrissey's July concert in Warsaw.
But, oh, he's not done playing yet. Morrissey will continue touring in the U.K. and Europe in October and November before returning to the U.S. for more dates in late November.
