Morrissey: 'Warner refused to re-release 'The Queen Is Dead' for its 30th anniversary'
Iconic music star Morrissey has revealed that he really wanted to re-issue single 'The Queen Is Dead' by The Smiths to mark its 30th anniversary, but the record label refused.
On a post shared via the website True To You, he explained that he tried to get it re-released, but was met with a resounding no from Warner UK and Sire US:
"I am sorry that Warner UK or Sire US cannot provide any celebrations for the anniversaries of both recordings, but, perhaps some label bosses have their eye on a tatty OBE, and perhaps others simply have detachable heads."
"Bleeding to death, I therefore have the restless gall to ask of you that, should you have 99 cents/pence, that you purchase 'The Queen Is Dead' track in the final week of May, thus possibly edging it into the corner of everyone's ear in the UK Top 100 - if only to let them know that we are still here and fully aware of the fox-fur on the hall-stand."
