Morrissey confirms he is currently writing a novel

Morrissey has revealed that he is half-way through writing his first novel.

The singer achieved massive success with his debut autobiography in October and he is building on that with a book.

When asked in a fan Q&A on website True To You if he is planning on penning a novel, Morrissey replied:

"In 2013 I published my Autobiography and it has been more successful than any record I have ever released, so, yes, I am mid-way through my novel. I have my hopes."

The Smiths singer later went on to give his damning thoughts on the music industry, adding:

"The actuality is that radio stations will not play my music, and the majority of people have lost faith in the music industry, and it's generally assumed - quite rightly - that the number one chart positions are 'bought' by the major labels, so there really is no passion left in pop or rock music, and I don't think people believe for an instant that the faces we constantly see on television and in magazines are remotely popular. 

"It's all, now, solely a question of marketing. All success stories are safe and dreary, and you will never be taken by surprise by a hit song that sounds out of place. This is not just my view but the view of everyone I know."
