Morrissey Is a Light That Never Goes Out

Morrissey has a new record coming out, and has the details:

MORRISSEY is to release his cover of PATTI SMITH’s ’REDONDO BEACH’ as a single. The track, a live favourite last year, will be released on March 28. 'Redondo Beach' will be accompanied by a version of The Smiths’ classic ’There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’ and new song ’Noise Is The Best Revenge’.

A DVD single will also be released featuring footage of Morrissey performing ’There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’ from his upcoming ’Who Put The M in Manchester’ DVD and ’It's Hard To Walk Tall When You're Small’ from a recent session on BBC Radio 2's Janice Long programme. Seven-inch and maxi singles are also planned.
I didn't know they were making DVD singles. As many of you know, releasing a solo version of your old band's music is Advanced, especially if the new version is dramatically different and violates the spirit of the original.
