Morrissey's first single in five years, 'World Peace Is None of Your Business', will be released tomorrow (May 13).

The former Smiths frontman features in the artwork for the single (looking typically unimpressed) which is also the title track of his forthcoming album. The album of the same name is set for a July release.

Watch a video of Morrissey performing 'World Peace Is None of Your Business' below:

Morrissey's US tour in support of his forthcoming album, the follow-up to 2009's Year of Refusal, has been embroiled in controversy in recent days; he was forced to cut his San Jose set short after fans rushed onto the stage during his encore, and allegedly asked two bands performing a show in the same Santa Ana venue as he was playing in to leave or postpone their sets so they wouldn't disrupt his show.

The tracklisting for World Peace Is None of Your Business is as follows:

1. 'World Peace Is None of Your Business'
2. 'Neal Cassady Drops Dead'
3. 'Istanbul'
4. 'I'm Not a Man'
5. 'Earth Is the Loneliest Planet'
6. 'Staircase at the University'
7. 'The Bullfighter Dies'
8. 'Kiss Me a Lot'
9. 'Smiler With Knife'
10. 'Kick the Bride Down the Aisle'
11. 'Mountjoy'
12. 'Oboe Concerto'

Below - The victims of Morrissey's latest rant:

  • David Beckham - "rent a smile"

  • Prince William and Prince Harry: William is "zombified" whilst Harry has a "natural idiocy"

  • David Cameron: "shoots stag whenever he feels a bit bored"

  • Jamie Oliver: The "overweight Jamie 'Orrible"

  • Charles and Camilla: "Charles and Camel"

  • Sarah Palin: "Dingbat coward"

  • Kate and Pippa Middleton: Pippa is a "thickwit" and the "sick face of modern Britain" whilst Kate "became 'royal' simply by answering the telephone at the right time"

  • Michelle Bachmann - has "joined the murderous insanity of destruction without any fear of arrest"

  • Princess Anne - "slack-witted"

  • PJ Harvey and Bryan Ferry: Slated for supporting fox hunting

  • Prince Philip: "We are asked to feel round-the-clock concern for the failing health of Prince Philip, yet his offhand civility is all we’ve ever known of him, and since his life has meant nothing to the British people then why should his approaching death?"
