Morrissey is coming off a difficult 2009, a year that made him ask, “What does the future hold? What does the next minute hold?” No word on the former, but for the immediate future he continues to promote last year’s greatest hits collection Swords, despite calling it a “meek disaster.” This song must bring back happier memories. “Ganglord” is the b-side to “The Youngest Was the Most Loved,” the second single from 2006’s Ringleader of the Tormentors. And the “Ganglord” video’s a simple affair: Morrissey walks the graffitied streets of L.A. and takes a detour through a cemetery.
Swords is out now via Polydor.
