Morrissey Announces New Smiths 7″ With Alternate Versions

Morrissey has just announced the release of a new Smiths 7″ through his semi-official True To You fansite. According to the post, the single will contain two tracks, a demo mix of “The Boy With The Thorn In His Side” and a previously unissued version of “Rubber Ring.” It’s not entirely clear what “previously unissued” actually means — it could be another demo, or an alternate version, or who knows what. But whatever it is, Morrissey approves of it, and he designed the cover art for the release, which features a photograph of actor Albert Finney, himself. A release date hasn’t yet been announced, but the single will be available on Warner UK.
