MorrisseyMorrissey claims Harvest botched the release of his latest album

A post on the fan-site True To You outlined the details of the tour, which also passes through Italy, Portugal, Austria, Germany, Poland, Sweden and Denmark. The tour will come as somewhat of a surprise to fans, given the chaos of the past couple of weeks. Last week, the singer claimed he had been dropped by his label Harvest, though executive refuted the claims and denied they had ended the contract. Morrissey's album World Peace is None of Your Business has been removed from US iTunes and Spotify.

"Most of the Harvest team are very nice, and I sincerely thank them for trying and caring so much - even if their promotional duties were fully undertaken by the Morrissey audience themselves, whose You Tube videos for World peace is none of your business fully provide the art that the label could not muster. The listeners instantly understood how entertainment could also be art," said Morrissey in a statement.

"Staggeringly, I still believe that there's a label out there with my name on it, and one that will issue World peace is none of your business, and afford it the respect it deserves."
