Since releasing his album World Peace Is None Of Your Business, the relationship between Capitol-Harvest and Morrissey has been anything but rosy. Recently, Moz claimed to have been dropped by the label without an explanation, a claim that Capitol-Harvest strongly denied.

Morrissey now claims he has evidence of the communications between himself and the label. The statement reads as follows:

In response to Andrew Flanagan's incorrect report for Billboard online (15 August 2014), both Morrissey and Morrissey's lawyer are in possession of email correspondence from Steve Barnett (head of Capitol-Harvest Records), and also from Steve Barnett's personal assistant, both of whom confirm that Capitol-Harvest have ended their relationship with Morrissey. No recording Agreement with Capitol-Harvest was ever signed by Morrissey, and Morrissey retains full ownership of World Peace is None Of Your Business. Contrary to the assured Billboard report, Capitol-Harvest have very clearly stated that they would have no interest in licensing a second album by Morrissey. Russells (London), who represent Morrissey, are presently concluding Morrissey's relationship with Harvest Records.

Once again, Morrissey is in search of a new label.
