You've heard the singles, watched the live debuts, and seen the strange spoken word videos, but now Morrissey has finally bestowed his full 10th solo LP upon the world, over at NPR. World Peace Is None of Your Business was recorded in France with his touring lineup of guitarists Boz Boorer and Jesse Tobias, bassist Solomon Walker, and drummer Matthew Walker. Gustavo Manzur manned keyboards and Joe Chiccarelli (known for work with Beck and the Strokes) handled the production.

This 12-track effort largely seems to follow in the tradition of the singles that have surfaced thus far, but Moz is incorporating a fair amount of weirdness (see the tortured outro of "Neal Cassady Drops Dead") into his swooning indie pop structures this time around.

Despite all those tour cancellations, the follow-up to 2009's Years of Refusal is still due out July 15 on Harvest Records.
