    Morrissey has issued an online statement about his forthcoming live DVD, Live at the Hollywood Bowl. According to a posting on http://true-to-you.net/, the former Smiths frontman never authorized its release. As he explains it, "The slapdash release of Morrissey Live at the Hollywood Bowl is done by Warner without any consultation to me whatsoever, and is in breach of their terms as laid out by themselves in an agreement made for the film between Warner and my ex-manager. Being Warner, predictably the sleeve art is appalling. It is the work of cash-hounds, and I urge people NOT to buy it. I am not signed to Warner, and no royalties from this DVD will come to me. Please spend your money elsewhere."

    Yet another alleged Moz posting explained the delay of his next solo disc, Years of Refusal, from this fall until early 2009. It'll apparently come out on February 2 overseas now, with a TBD domestic date since Morrissey has severed his ties from Decca. (He wasn't happy with their push behind his recent Greatest Hits record.)

    Oh, one more bit of happy news from the singer's mouth: "It is understood that Warner Music in London are releasing a Smiths Greatest Hits album in the final quarter of 2008. This release is without Morrissey's approval or involvement."

    Oh, cheer up, mate.
