Morrissey has placed an advertisement on a fan site to find a book publisher.

Nobody needs to point out that Morrissey is a rather eclectic individual and does things in very different ways. Still, who would have expected him to look for a new publisher by, essentially, placing an ad on a fan site.

The singer regularly uses True to You as his way to talk with fans and the world and now he’s using it to communicate with the business world. On Monday, he posted a message looking for a new music publisher:

Morrissey’s 30-year publishing term with Warner-Chappell Music has come to an end. If any publishing company has any interest in making a new offer for Morrissey’s solo and Smiths catalogues, they should please contact

It would seem that the Morrissey/Smith catalogue would be of quite a bit of value, so it will be interesting to see how long it is before a signing announcement is made.

Morrissey also released the digital single Earth is the Loneliest Planet on Tuesday via the regular download retailers.
