Morrissey’s new album has a title (see above) and release date (around 3/21). There’s a just-updated studio diary on producer Tony Visconti’s site. Photos too.

“Irish Blood English Heart” popped up on the iPod the other day. Sounds especially fantastic when you haven’t listened to it in a year.

Favorite Morrissey rumor … go:

    “I heard he eats babies”

    Morrisy would like you to beleive that he doesn’t eat babies, but he has never gone on record saying he doesn’t. Maybe thats becasue he is to busy eating babies.

    Looking a litle too Jay Leno-esque in that photo.

    Prefers it when addressed as “Mastah M”.

    My favourite rumour is that morrissey smokes a lot of pot and has a liking for circuit queens.

    well i wouldn’t say it was a rumour, but that’s what this strange dood on the bus told me one day after he saw my morrissey pin. i had a few j’s on me and i’m sure he could smell them, because when i didn’t buy the story that he was partying with morrissey he went for the “just found out i had cancer” route….

    He is completely bald and his “hair” is actually just a very well-behaved live ferret.

  9. A.  |   Posted on Nov 3rd, 2005 0

    I love how his hair looks exactly the same except grayer and he’s put on a few pounds! (yeah i know that’s not a rumour)

  10. Moz is the New Face of Timex.

  11. Rachel  |   Posted on Nov 3rd, 2005 0

    i heard that he has “my humps” as a ringtone on his cell phone.

  12. Edwin  |   Posted on Nov 3rd, 2005 0

    I heard he’s straight.

  13. eric  |   Posted on Nov 3rd, 2005 0

    i heard he has kind of a gut…oh wait, that’s obvious from the photo. nevermind.

  14. xolondon  |   Posted on Nov 3rd, 2005 0

    A gut? Yeah and when you are his age, you will too. Except you won’t have as much money.

  15. Back in the day (mid-90s was my Moz heyday) I heard that at the afterparty of a NYC show he was spotted eating hot dogs and hooking up with teenage boys.

  16. I prefer truth to rumor. he is the son of not one but two librarians. as a librarian, I think that is tops.

  17. marsh  |   Posted on Nov 3rd, 2005 0

    sasefina, that’s hot…hope it was true… except for the hotdogs part… that’d break my <3

  18. i heard he’s really over-rated as a solo artist. theres over-rated, and then theres MORRISSEY over-rated.

  19. i heard he likes to chew liverwurst, swish it around in his mouth with some christian brothers brandy, and then spit it out…

    or maybe it was he had gotten a paunch…i always get the two of us mixed up…

  20. ettett  |   Posted on Nov 4th, 2005 0

    As a librarian I can confirm that he’s Ray Davies.

  21. In junior high school, someone once told me he was satanic. When I went to the record shop and saw his albums Kill Uncle and Viva Hate, I knew it had to be true.

  22. blank  |   Posted on Nov 4th, 2005 0

    to Bill Brasky!

  23. john  |   Posted on Nov 4th, 2005 0

    he pulled me onstage at the 9:30 club in dc while singing “swallow on my neck” and it was probably the most surreal, incredible experience of my life. i freak out just thinking about it

  24. crack  |   Posted on Nov 4th, 2005 0

    He had a hispanic boyfriend in LA.

  25. PissFenders  |   Posted on Nov 4th, 2005 0

    i heard his poo smells of acorns.

  26. doug szathkey  |   Posted on Nov 5th, 2005 0

    not true, matthew. his father is/was a hospital porter. only mom is/was a librarian.

  27. Helen  |   Posted on Nov 5th, 2005 0

    I heard that the band-aid on his nipple in the video for “November Spawned A Monster” covered a nipple injury that involved Michael Stipe, a football and the cracks between planks in an old wooden floor.

    Serious.

  28. Ashlee Simpson  |   Posted on Nov 7th, 2005 0

    i heard he once lost his left foot in a waterslide mishap … he has a surgically attached cow hoof for his left “foot”

    that’s why he doesnt want people to eat cow meat

    *

    he also once passed out backstage and they pumped his stomach and found nothing out of the ordinary

  29. Jessica Simpson  |   Posted on Nov 7th, 2005 0

    i heard he started telling everybody he loved Oscar Wilde because he liked the movies Silver Stream and Stir Crazy … later when he found out that guy was Gene WildeR … he kept with his original story

    *

    he also once beat a hobo to death with sock filled with beans

  30. Smizzy  |   Posted on Nov 9th, 2005 0

    I hear he sleeps in the nude, covered only in a blanket made of pixie dust and 8 year-old boys.

  31. I heard he was married to Heidi Klum…

  32. moz fan  |   Posted on Nov 21st, 2005 0

  33. Old Mozza fan  |   Posted on Nov 25th, 2005 0

    A little birdie told me that the Smiths are getting back together…

    …for a big pillow fight.

  34. ive heard that hes dead and was replaced with a lookalike, if you play his records backwards it says so.

  35. Goth  |   Posted on Dec 13th, 2005 0

    You guys are nuts. My favourite rumour is that Moz is secretly married to a hispanic single mum. He pays maintance buy they don’t live together!

  36. CJay  |   Posted on Jan 2nd, 2006 0

    OMG what a load of bollocks! I mean u lot actually believe in what ur writing? ha! and re: moz fan’s quote, u are right he really does have an incredible and unique voice and that’s from a trained point of veiw too.

  41. Daddy Kelly  |   Posted on Apr 14th, 2007 0

    I learned he is a member of the Kelly Family.

  42. GeorgiaStorm  |   Posted on May 15th, 2007 0

    Gosh you guys seriously don’t know shit about any of this music, specially when your calling it EMO you FOOOOOOOLLLL! if you listen to the songs and just look at the guy he quite obviously isn’t emo you fucking dick. None of you know morrisey except from his songs so how the fuck would you know hes A homo? If you knew him you would know he isn’t and as a matter fact hes even said he isn’t your the gay one.. saying he’s emo as a bad thing and then googling him, obviously you like him or you wouldn’t have googled him. EMOOOOOOOOO. Morissey is a class song writer and doesn’t lack in common sense unlike some, he might be a veggy and be celabate but that doesn’t mean hes an emo freak. Goshh.

    up on the sand upon the bay theres a quick and easy way you say before you illustrate i’d rather stay i’m not the man you think i am i’m not the man you think i am.

    thanks.

    I heard Morrissey is a god and he’s the best artist that has ever and will ever live :]

  44. Missa  |   Posted on Aug 11th, 2007 0

    I heard that Moz is God…

    Oh, wait, that’s actually not a rumor either, is it…?

    Well, I also heard he liked to shop at Target and stock up on all the cheap plastic tableware there, especially the plastic shot glasses. Fact.

  45. I heard he was complete A-sexual and abstained from sex for 20 odd years…
