Morrissey is gearing up to hit the road for his world tour which kicks off this Saturday in Norway. Mozzer is doing some press interviews in promotion of the tour, and the first of these interviews was just published by Australian paper News. As is the case with virtually all Morrissey interviews these days, the interview was conducted via email, so the interviewer didn't have a chance to prod deeper into his responses.  Still, Morrissey interviews are always entertaining and this one is no exception.  Much of the feature tackles the usual Moz faire -- politics, the Royal family, and vegetarianism -- but there were also a few fun nuggets:

On Steven, the upcoming Morrissey biopic, starring Jack Lowden:

"I know nothing about it. I wasn’t consulted, so they obviously didn’t want my clarity to muddle up their perspective of how things were, or are, or should be."

On whether any unreleased Smiths' rarities exist:

"Only a cover of Elvis Presley’s A Fool Such As I. I don’t even have a copy of it, but I expect it will spring out one day"

As for the requisite Smiths' reunion question, Morrissey was asked if time heals wounds (with respect to reuniting with Johnny Marr):

"It's no longer a question of time or wounds, but simply that the issue is now so remote that the question doesn’t make sense any more."

Morrissey also confirmed reports of him running for Mayor of London were true, plus he answered questions about his setlists, vinyl, and his experience recording for Harvest Records.  Read the full interview with Morrissey here.
