MOR­RIS­SEY

Earth is the Loneli­est Planet Har­vest The third sin­gle from Mor­ris­sey’s World Peace Is None of Your Busi­ness al­bum hasn’t yet been of­fi­cially un­veiled. But we are of­fered this spo­ken-word lyric video, in which Moz and Pamela An­der­son en­joy a LA sun­set. Yes, you read right – Mor­ris­sey and Pamela An­der­son are friends. Ac­cord­ing to the Guardian, they spent a veg­e­tar­ian Thanks­giv­ing to­gether in 2002 “with fel­low guests”, in­clud­ing Kid Rock, bas­ket­ballerJohn Sal­ley “and a live turkey”. Se­ri­ously, why wasn’t this in Mor­ris­sey’s book? Four hun­dred-odd pages moan­ing about his record com­pany, and he doesn’t men­tion the weird­est din­ner party of all time!

JACK WHITE Just One Drink

Records “You drink wa­ter, I drink gaso­line/One of us is happy, the other of us is mean.” The sec­ond sin­gle from White’s Lazaretto al­bum (due out June 10th; see re­view, left) is an up-tempo party an­them with limited trunk space but ex­cel­lent miles per gal­lon.

THE GENE CLARK NO OTHER BAND Some Mis­un­der­stand­ing (Live in Wil­liams­burg)

The GCNOB are an in­die supergroup com­prised of var­i­ous mem­bers of Beach House, Fleet Foxes and Griz­zly Bear. They will tour the east coast of the US this sum­mer play­ing songs from the late Byrds gui­tarist’s most ac­claimed solo al­bum. Here Daniel Rossen tack­les the al­bum’s stand­out track and han­dles it with aplomb!

Par­lophone Shake­speare, Paul Gas­coigne, John Len­non, the Queen, lager, ser­vice sta­tions . . . Lily Allen’s “un­of­fi­cial World Cup an­them” lists all of the things she loves about Eng­land, a na­tion which, she boasts has been “doin’ it since way back in the day”. If that’s a ref­er­ence to los­ing to Ger­many at foot­ball, well, you’d have to agree.
