Morrissey has shared a forgotten studio track! You can listen to ‘By The Time I Get To Wherever I’m Going’ below.
The former lead singer of The Smiths has been using his website to post some pretty controversial thoughts recently regarding the current state of the UK press and his continuing war with animal cruelty. Now, The Mozzer has used the same platform to share a never heard before studio offering called ‘‘By The Time I Get To Wherever I’m Going.’
In an interview on his site the front man also said that he can’t really listen to his old band The Smiths anymore. When quizzed about whether he would ever listen to the music of his past band, he replied: ‘No. It was beautiful, but it’s gone. My pride is with ‘Low In High School‘, ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business‘, ‘Years Of Refusal‘, ‘Ringleader Of the Tormentors‘, ‘You Are The Quarry‘, ‘Swords’, ‘Southpaw Grammar’, ‘Your Arsenal’, ‘Vauxhall and I’ … they are me, whereas The Smiths was a great but simplistic time.
The singer also said he was disappointing at the lack of press attention for the members of The Smiths, ‘Last year I did an interview with The Times newspaper and the piece emerged with an enormous photograph of The Smiths…who weren’t even mentioned in the conversation. I must live with it. There can never be enough detail to look beyond The Smiths, or to write a headline that wasn’t a Smiths song.’
‘I don’t think it’s a hateful gesture to keep pulling me back to 1983, but there’s certainly a morbid sentimentality. It’s a bit like referring to David Bowie only in relation to The Laughing Gnome.’
Between the word wrangling and new music, the outspoken icon also posted a picture of his cat. Mewissey? Anyone?…I’ll get my coat.
