Bu then isn't this the "new" album?

I assume and hope that this isn't the thing they have been in the studio for. Chain Gang was recorded in the spring, the unreleased tracks are most likely outtakes from the LIHS sessions in 2017 and the tracks done live in the studio shouldn't have taken long to record.

This one, I wonder? Or maybe this...


There's another long-haired one though, isn't there?

This cover would be great and the title of album,this:

Long hair is an unpardonable offense which should be punishable by death.

Fek mate. Reckon this cover would be great showing Uncle Steve in his high school years at Hollywood High. I reckon if Uncle Steve's favorite ride at Disneyland was Space Mountain or Thunder Mountain mate inn n nn n nn n n nn n n n nn nn nn nnn nn n nnn n nnn it.

The recent recording sessions were for a forthcoming covers album, we're they not? And, therefore, the tracks on the LiHS reissue are additoonal to that or am misunderstanding?

Allegedly one track recorded with the 'other' musicians - Chain Gang. The 3.5 weeks spent in the studio - anyone's guess (covers album most likely given information available).
Not forgetting the already done tracks that Joe et al left off the album at the time which probably require little effort.
(Oh, and possibly the mysterious Berlin meeting of Jesse, Moz & Boz may have been studio work - nothing solid to base that on other than travel photos).
Regards,
FWD.

Fek blikey. That IS NOT Uncle "Air Steve" Morrissey. It is Michael Stipe. Steve was born in LA, not Mankchester. Another fake pic of Uncle Steve as a kid or teenager in Mankchester. You foreigner delusional loonies here are so lost.

What I'd like to know is - why post "By the Time" and "Blue Dreamers Eyes" for free on YouTube months before announcing this? Did he perhaps think the deluxe edition was not going to happen?

Are you sure they’re gonna be on there though. Also don’t some people usually release singles on YouTube before albums go on sale

Obviously I'm not sure, but he knows that there are fans who will still buy stuff that's already out there for free - which may be the answer to my own question.

Yeah, I think that's pretty much the model for music distribution in 2018 -- distribute freely to the broader audience (which does recoup some royalties) and sell the physicals to the core fan base.

Just a little odd to see Morrissey "going by the model," I suppose. :paranoid:

I would agree with that if he had released all of the tracks on the delux but isn’t releasing one or two, assuming he songs are on the album, just what bands have been doing forever. Just promo tracks or videos
