Last November, Morrissey announced that plans were in the works for Warner Brothers to release a physical single from The Smiths featuring previously unreleased versions of "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side" and "Rubber Ring."  It turns out the 7" single will be released on April 22nd for Record Store Day and will be limited to only 5000 copies.

Note that the artwork for the single has changed since last November.

This is the scrapped artwork:


This is the new artwork:

Side A: The Boy With The Thorn In His Side (demo mix)
Side B: Rubber Ring (early Drone Studios version)

Meanwhile Morrissey will be hitting the road for his North American tour next week, and in promotion of the tour he consented to an email interview with The Dallas Observer. The legend was asked to comment on the upcoming unauthorized Morrissey biopic England Is Mine, and as you might expect he didn't have any kind words for the project:

"I wasn't approached or consulted by the filmmakers, so I think it's safe to make all the logical assumptions that arise from that. Yikes, I believe, is the common expression."

Read the full interview with Morrissey here.
