Morrissey Reveals New Single Details
Greatest hits gets UK release date

Now that Morrissey's settled all that label drama and let the NME know what's what, he can finally get back to what he does best. No, not crying, silly. Recording and releasing popular music to soundtrack your tears!

January 28, Moz will issue his inaugural release for Polydor/Decca: a tri-format UK single for "That's How People Grow Up", one of two new tracks on his forthcoming fifteen-track greatest solo hits collection (due UK-ways February 4; U.S. date TBA). Recorded with You Are the Quarry producer Jerry Finn (who's also helming sessions for Moz's next solo LP, due this fall), "Grow Up" will be backed by a handful of live takes on Moz/Smiths classics culled from 2007 tours on a CD and a pair of 7"s. No word yet on a U.S. release for the single.

In addition to his plethora of '08 releases, Morrissey's got that previously announced European tour he'll kick off in mid-January. Three tracklists and a tour itinerary after the jump.
