Morrissey's official site True To You posted answers to part six of his ongoing fan Q & A series. Moz discussed several subjects near and dear to him like animal rights and vegetarianism, plus he discussed his influences and his own impact.  He also took a few swipes at the music industry:

"I am not given credit for being a universal voice, yet I see the incredible results all around me. If a record company ever promoted me on a worldwide level it would explode. I have never been with a label that saw me as anything but an oddity. I am not at all odd. I am simply speaking for now.

"The actuality is that radio stations will not play my music, and the majority of people have lost faith in the music industry, and it's generally assumed - quite rightly - that the number one chart positions are "bought" by the major labels, so there really is no passion left in pop or rock music, and I don't think people believe for an instant that the faces we constantly see on television and in magazines are remotely popular. It's all, now, solely a question of marketing. All success stories are safe and dreary, and you will never be taken by surprise by a hit song that sounds out of place."

Morrissey also revealed that he's halfway through writing a novel, plus he's about to go into the studio to record a new album. He didn't go into details about the new material other than to say one of the new songs is titled "Istanbul" which is named for one of his favorite places in the world. Read the full Q & A session with Morrissey here.

Meanwhile, Morrissey's cover of "Satellite Of Love" will be released physically on January 27th. The single will be available as a 12 inch disc as well as a 7 inch picture disc that comes with a b-side exclusive to each format. A digital release will also be available on January 27th.
