Wedding Bell Blues was played earlier today on the Ken Bruce show as a world exclusive.
Digital versions and a YouTube video followed thereafter.
It is reportedly the 22 year anniversary of Laura Nyro's passing today also (thanks Anon for the info).
The radio broadcast and other versions are available in the download section.

Thought I heard a high voice on the first ‘Bill’. Forgot she’s on this one.

rubbish, Morrissey makes himself ridiculous with this awfull song, well a song which fit Morrissey, and during listening i have every second moment of the song I have the feeling , it doesn't fit Morrissey.

nuff~

Listening to this again and again ...

really has the swing and bounce of The Smiths work, but both were influenced by and loved these great artists, and obviously Morrissey still is.

Morning Starship was was a perfect choice for this covers project and its a great listen. Jobriath's backstory is kind of epic but he was completely forgotten and died horribly. The first big wave of AIDS in downtown NYC. I remember we would see Klaus Nomi around. Little cutie. Then BOOM. Overnight he was gone. Klaus would be hard to cover otherwise he would be on the list instead of this. Laura Nyro? The Orb was brill. Coolness factor!

Was just played by Zoe Ball on her Breakfast Show on Radio 2, who described it as "his ode to Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day". (And who also commented, over the first seconds of the song, that it sounded "more cheerful than you'd expect from Morrissey" - or words to that effect.) So this is definitely getting some traction on Radio 2...
