MORRISSEY has revealed the full details of his new Greatest Hits album, due out on February 11, 2008 via Polydor/Decca.

A special, limited edition run of CDs will feature a Live At The Hollywood Bowl bonus CD, featuring eight tracks recorded live in California on June 8, 2007.

The Greatest Hits collection spans Morrissey’s stellar 20-year career as a true original, and one of the UK’s greatest musical talents.

Every song on is a UK Top 20 single and nine of these are Top 10 hits.

Two new songs are included – forthcoming single That’s How People Grow Up and All You Need Is Me – recorded with Jerry Finn, producer of 2004’s widely acclaimed No.2 album You Are The Quarry.

Morrissey is currently working with Finn on his new studio album, the follow-up to 2006’s No.1 Ringleader Of The Tormentors. The new LP is scheduled for an Autumn 2008 release.
