Already on the long list of Lou Reed mourners with a heart-felt message written shortly after the singer's death, Morrissey has announced the release of a tribute cover.

The live take of Moz singing 'Satellite of Love' from Reed's 1972 Transformer, recorded at The Chelsea Ballroom in Las Vegas on November 25th, 2011, will be released on December 2nd to coincide with the audiobook release of the Mancunian songwriter's autobiography.

The track will be available as a limited edition 7" picture disc and a digital download, together with the classic 'You're Gonna Need Someone on Your Side' and some previously unreleased live tracks. [via FACT]
