Regarding the U.S. release date of Greatest Hits.

Release Information

Girlie Action and Decca have announced details of Morrissey's Greatest Hits compilation to be released on Decca in the United States on March 25.

The album - which is Morrissey's first for Decca - was released in the United Kingdom on February 11 and entered the UK chart at #5 this week.

Greatest Hits will be available in the US on the following formats: a regular jewel box CD version of 15 tracks; a double vinyl LP version of 15 tracks; and a deluxe limited edition CD version that, in addition to the 15 tracks, will also feature a Live At The Hollywood Bowl bonus CD of nine tracks recorded live in California on June 8, 2007. The bonus CD will include a US exclusive live rendition of "That's How People Grow Up."

Greatest Hits spans Morrissey's stellar 20-year solo career as a true original and one of the world's greatest musical talents. The collection includes UK Top 10 and Top 20 singles. Two tracks - "That's How People Grow Up" and "All You Need Is Me" - are new songs recorded with Jerry Finn, producer of 2004's widely acclaimed Billboard Top 20 album You Are The Quarry.

Morrissey is currently working with Finn on his new studio album, the follow-up to 2006's UK #1 album Ringleader Of The Tormentors. Morrissey will tour Europe this year, and his new studio album is due out in the autumn.
