Morrissey dropped by record label?

Morrissey fansite True To You is reporting that Morrissey has been dropped by his label, Harvest, just weeks after the release of his first album for the imprint, World Peace Is None Of Your Business.

According to a news story on the fanzine site, the move was the decision of label boss Steve Barnett, although Harvest have yet to officially comment and as of this morning Moz does still appear as a featured artist on Harvest's website.

The story comes just days after Morrissey appeared to criticise the label in a long post of his own on the fansite, which expressed the singer's gratitude for the number of fan-created videos on YouTube to accompany his new songs, adding that: “Yes, a similar document ought to have been harvested by the record label, but please understand that the pop or rock industry can be as dedicated to perpetuating public deception as the world of politics itself.” The former Smiths frontman had signed a two album deal with the label, who are part of Capitol Records.
