With his 'Autobiography' flying high and a new record deal under his belt, Morrissey is in keen spirits.
Now the singer is to re-visit a pivotal solo moment, with the re-issue of 1994's 'Vauxhall & I'. Released as Britpop was on the rise and that NME story broke, it was a defiant gesture from the minstrel of melancholy and seemingly remains a personal favourite with Morrissey himself.
Due to be re-issued on June 2nd via Parlophone, the re-vamped edition of 'Vauxhall & I' contains a live set recorded in 1995 at the Theatre Royal in Drury Lane, London.
The performance looks to be intriguing - focusing on 'Vauxhall & I' the singer drops in non-album single 'Boxers' and a cover of Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini’s 'Moonriver'.
'Vauxhall & I' will be re-issued on June 2nd. Tracklisting:
