I really thought I read that he had an album recorded waiting to be released. Guess not

And the lead single will almost assuredly be "People Are the Same Everywhere", the weakest song he's done in a while.

On the plus side, hopefully some of the other songs he's been doing live should either make the album or at least be a b-side. "Action Is My Middle Name" is great, as are a few others he's been doing the past couple of years.

I think AIMN is a far better single choice.

I haven't really been a big fan of the recent live songs but Years of Refusal is actually my favourite solo Morrissey release so I'm excited.

Oh, I definitely do, as well. But the way he pushed "People" on talk shows, etc, makes me think it'll be the lead.

If it's not, I will be very pleasantly surprised. (Unless its replacement is equally as forgettable.)

likewise. Those songs have been around a while now and I don't think they were all that great anyway.

I also wish Alain was part of this. Boz-written material is often more middle of the road type stuff.

Yeah would love him involved too. Made Years of Refusal so great.

I haven't listened to "Years" in a while, I need to remedy that. When it came out, it was in my kitchen's CD player for like a year, so I have this association with washing dishes when I hear it. So maybe by now, that association will have diluted a bit.
