Morrissey recently chatted it up with interviewer John Riggers in a newly published interview over at Morrissey Central. Many of the usual (and controversial) subjects were covered - politics, the monarchy, animal cruelty, the press, Low In High School - but regardless of the topic Morrissey interviews are always a fascinating read. I'll leave other websites to pontificate on Mozzer's political commentary and focus instead on the musical highlights of the interview.

Morrissey talked a bit about The Smiths, revealing "The Smiths were explosive during the Rank tour. Before that, we were all fumbling about - me, especially. My voice wasn’t great. The music was always solid."

He says that he no longer listens to The Smiths, "it was beautiful, but it's gone" but is pleased with his solo catalog, other than the first two albums. Asked to expound on his disenchantment with Viva Hate and Kill Uncle, he admitted "I wasn't ready, I rushed in too quickly. It was my fault."

As for album artwork, he considers the album sleeve for Maladjusted "the worst" and said his favorite is the image on the Greatest Hits album.

Morrissey confirmed he is working on new material and says a new album is "under way," and he'll likely play some dates overseas this summer.

He took issue with Spin over published comments that allegedly accuse him of being a fascist, and implied that he's going to sue:

"It’s unfortunate to take any publication to court, but sometimes you must, and this is one of those times because otherwise the press can succeed in dictating an ugly view, which they fully realize can place you in danger."
