Former The Smiths star Morrissey is to release his autobiography at the end of 2012.
The cult singer has been the subject of many books, but he has yet to write his own account of his life.
Joking "the innocent are named and the guilty are protected", the British star tells Billboard.com the tome will hit book stores and the Internet in December, 2012.
He says, "I see it as the sentimental climax to the last 30 years. It will not be published until December 2012, which gives me just enough time to pack all I own in a box and disappear to central Brazil."
