"It's Over" b/w "It Happens Every Time" blue vinyl 7" released (UK Jan. 24, 2020; HMV-Dec 20, 2019)

From the Jan. 2, 2020 post on Morrissey Central: "It is now reported that the official BMG release date for Morrissey's "It's Over" is January 24th, by which time "Morrissey will be 116 years old" (secret source.)"

December 20 finally sees the UK release of the 7" blue vinyl of It's Over.
There is no matrix message on this record.
The word 'stereo' is replaced by 'rodeo' on the B-side (as pictured).
It features a cover of Tim Buckley's "It Happens Every Time".

Information about dates/stock outside of HMV and European sellers isn't currently available other than the release dates already quoted on their sites.

The convoluted It's Over timeline from announcement to release:
  • February 25, 2019 - appears on Spotify.
  • February 26, 2019 - released digitally as an 'instant grat' & pre-order bonus prior to California Son (radio airplay of the track especially in the UK). Physical single is mentioned (with Brow Of My Beloved as B-side - Mitchum green, red & white cover shown).
  • March 27, 2019 - Central shares an unofficial It's Over video.
  • September 18, 2019 - Central inform us of a new single - no release date given (featuring Mitchum on the 7" with green, red & white font/colour)
  • October 1, 2019 - "heartbreaking" news that BMG have shelved the single (7" pictured again as per September 18).
  • October 9, 2019 - Central states the single will be released "in the second week of November"

  • November 12, placeholder spotted on UK Amazon - also on the Italian Amazon with November 29 as a release date (showing the original artwork and fonts as per September 18).
  • November 14, 2019 - the single appears on the Warner's portal site with product number "4050538559873" (seen with my own eyes). The single has not been listed on any Warners buying in sheets throughout the year - especially November or December so no indie shops are aware of it officially as the sheets dictate what is available to buy.
  • November 14, 2019 - a new image for the 7" with moved lettering/new crop is found on an Italian record shop site - also citing December 13 as the release date.
  • November 16, 2019 - Amazon UK removes the single from their listings. It remains on the .DE/FR/IT sites.

  • November 23, 2019 - Member @Marco informs us Crash Records are citing a release "early next year".
  • December 11, 2019 - Cover art updates on all Amazons and the listing reappears on the UK site.
  • December 20, 2019 - @Kennethwilliamsunderstudy informs us HMV are stocking the 7" in Newcastle and I find them in Birmingham HMV too.
  • December 20, 2019 - Morrissey via Central's "… AND ‘IT’S OVER’ CAME TUMBLING AFTER." stated the single was: "spotted in a couple of HMV's - six weeks after its release date."
  • December 25, 2019 - The Krays are pictured 'finding' copies of the single in a Central post entitled: "Miracle".
  • December 27, 2019 - It's Over enters the UK vinyl singles chart at #2 on HMV sales alone.
  • December 28, 2019 - Central comments on the charting via: "A MORRISSEY SINGLE IS RELEASED BY MISTAKE - IT STILL REACHES NUMBER 2"
  • December 31, 2019 - Amazon .DE & .IT were observed to change the release date from 11th to 24th of January.
  • January 1, 2020 - Central assert BMG have January 10 scheduled as the official release date.
  • January 2, 2020 - Central update the release date information to January 24.

My question would be.......Does the 7" singles, that leaked out early on Dec 20th at HMV stores hold more value now than todays releases? Is there anything different between the two on sleeve or vinyl.....and has anyone spotted a sleeve with the original colors of green,red,white.or they got shelved for the current ones....and last, Any promos spotted on this particular single as of today...
None of them hold value. They’re not worth shit. Don’t waste your money.

I’m confused. Why the choice of a Rodeo? Hardly in keeping with his animal welfare politics/beliefs is it?

Actually, I’m not confused. I think he is. Very.

I expect the fact the film is called The Lusty Men might have something to do with it.

£12.99 for 4 mins 52 seconds of music, which by anyone else's standards is one proper song duration. Has the world gone mad?! That's a rhetorical question.

God. Just put to rest the disaster of California Son, which sold 25.000 copies worldwide, and its corresponding singles.

Maybe the new album will actually chart outside the UK in the main charts. And yes, number one in Poland with sales of 1.237 copies.
Do you feel like your life has added meaning now that you have posted this illiterate nonsense? It might be best if you find something a little more productive to do in the time you have left. I'm sure there are a few windows in your flat which remain unlicked.

5 minutes of garbage in a half-assed sleeve for $20 CAD?

Must be another of Morrissey’s pension top-up releases.

The first image was a mockup and was never pressed as such. Of the 2 versions of the blue/black & white cover - again, it looks like the first of the 2 was a digital image, never a product. The vinyl shipping today is exactly the same as that sold early by HMV and there's zero difference in value/cover/vinyl etc.
This may see the single re-enter the vinyl singles chart having already got to number 1 - which will cement this release as the oddest, most convoluted and problematic single he's ever released.
There's no sign of any promos or white labels yet - something that has reduced greatly and become rarer as radio stations don't use/get vinyl sent to them by record companies anymore.

I really appreciate that info its helped tremendously.....again thank you

It's Over. A comment on his career quite possibly. And this has nothing to do with his 'political' leanings, more his songs. He has forgotten how to write a song ... he's forgotten how to write lyrics that have grace, humor and wit. LIHS was a turgid, sonically insipid, lyrically banal record. As a glass is always half full fella' I keep my fingers crossed that INADOAC has some tunes ... and decent lyrics.

Had the B Side surfaced anywhere? Sorry if I've missed it but thought it (the music) would be discussed more here than everything else.

No digital yet,
Shared here via vinyl rip courtesy of Adhouse - then people took that and you will find it on YT too as a result.

Can’t you just scroll by my posts if you find them so illiterate? I would say that you are the one who needs to find something more productive to do since you are the one spending your time responding to someone without adding anything argumentative on the subject matter of the original post and instead engage in poor attempts to be cleaver with adolescent “window licking” comments.

See? Understand? Get the irony? You literally wasted time responding to me - when you could have been more productive doing something else. Maybe next time think things through before you post nonsense. And if you want to be more productive, don’t bother to respond to a post by telling the poster to be more productive. Good grief.

Skinny learn your place as a troll and stop giving orders to decent posters here. Trolls are not to act high and mighty.

Find a hobby since there is no way you are employable.
