World Peace Is None of Your Business

Album: World Peace Is None of Your Business (2014)
  • Recorded in France with Morrissey's touring band, this is a barbed lament on the futility of voting or any kind of engagement with the political system as it stands. Morrissey debuted the tune live on May 7, 2014 at the San Jose Civic Auditorium in San Jose, California.
  • The track is paired with a spoken-word performance video directed by Natalie Johns, which features a cameo from Nancy Sinatra.
