Stream Morrissey's 'World Peace Is None Of Your Business' at NPR Music's First Listen

Morrissey’s critically acclaimed album, out July 15th on Harvest Records, is now streaming via NPR Music’s First Listen. His 10th studio album was recorded in France at La Fabrique Studios in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France.

World Peace Is None Of Your Business explores the tragedy of human apathy in our turbulent, modern era. Morrissey's career as a writer reaches new lyrical heights but maintains his signature humor, drama, and emotional longing. World Peace Is None Of Your Business was produced by Joe Chiccarelli at La Fabrique Studios in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France.


World Peace is sweepingly powerful and effortlessly transgressive. Morrissey is in fine mature voice, belting with gusto and going gentle without strain. His touring band provides wide-ranging support in arrangements that incorporate everything from Portuguese fado to lounge-music cool to rock grandiosity. Longtime guitarist Boz Boorer is the anchor; Gustavo Manzur, on keyboards and percussion, is the utility player pushing the sound. Producer Joe Chiccarelli makes it all cohere, giving Morrissey room to emote within the wash of musical elements.” NPR Music

“The magnificent Moz is as sharp-witted as ever”  Rolling Stone

“The legendary singer proves that he's still one of the sharpest musical personalities in the world.” Chicago Reader

World Peace Is None Of Your Business is so good you'll want to stand and cheer: encore une fois!" MOJO

“A stunning album: a grand return for form, and an album which, like 2004's hiatus-ending You Are The Quarry, proves that no amount of time in the wilderness can dull Steven Patrick's wit, wisdom or wonder.” NME

“A stunning career high from Morrissey” Irish Independent

World Peace Is None Of Your Business is up for pre-order. Pre-order options include deluxe editions with bonus material and signed copies of Morrissey’s best-selling Autobiography.
