“Istanbul” was one of the World Peace Is None Of Your Business songs Morrissey reinterpreted as spoken word last week. Now the actual song is here, and it’s tremendous — a typically suave rocker powered by unexpectedly feral guitar riffs and groovy percussion. Listen below via Spotify.

The song is also available for purchase on iTunes. World Peace Is None Of Your Business is out 7/15 via Harvest.
