Morrissey has a long history of speaking up for animals, and his new album is no exception.

STREAM WORLD PEACE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS NOW!

In an exclusive interview with PETA marking the release of World Peace Is None of Your Business (the ONLY interview he’s given anywhere to promote the album!), the ever-elusive vegan rock icon discusses his latest animal rights anthem and shows off his PETA pride:

2014 marks my 30th year standing alongside my friends and allies at PETA, and it’s a kinship I relish because PETA has given us all enough support in order to speak up and show our objection to the animal haters who are so certain that they run the game.

Morrissey has shown time and time again that he is a true hero for animals, and while some may call him the Pope of Mope, he’s never afraid to use his voice—or his humor!—to speak up for animals. Just check out this fantastic PSA he did for peta2 a few years ago:

So what is the must-hear track off the new album? We like “The Bullfighter Dies,” a caustic, upbeat pop tune that turns the tables and allows the bull to win in the arena for once.

Check out Morrissey’s thoughts on the track and the bloody “sport” of bullfighting:

‘The Bullfighter Dies’ is a shout-out for the total abolition of the living horror of bullfighting, and since those who control such barbarity have no interest in the welfare of the bull, then we can only approach the subject by stressing how the overwhelming majority do not have any sympathy when the bullfight does not go the bullfighter’s way.

The new song is a companion piece to Morrissey’s 1985 vegetarian battle cry “Meat Is Murder,” the title track on one of The Smiths’ most groundbreaking albums. Morrissey’s music has always challenged the status quo and continues to change minds and s everywhere.

Violence is built very solidly into our society, and it is nowhere more prevalent than the despair of factory farming and the slaughterhouse—both monuments to human selfishness, and both suspiciously barred to public scrutiny.

For decades, PETA has provided Morrissey with slaughterhouse footage to show onscreen when he performs “Meat Is Murder” at his sold-out concerts around the world, leaving countless vegetarians in his wake. He even makes venues such as Los Angeles’ massive STAPLES Center close its McDonald’s and KFC stands when he appears—but he always has a PETA booth to give out literature.

Morrissey recently returned the favor by granting peta2 permission to use his epic song “I Know It’s Gonna Happen Someday” in a video about an adorable cartoon chick:

No other pop star is more dedicated to keeping animal rights front and center than Morrissey, who uses both his music and his persona to spread pro-animal messages. Take inspiration from Moz’s words and get active!

Although many people are certain that humans can do whatever they like to other living beings, many people do not feel this way—and here we are!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
