Morrissey alters Viva Hate for impending reissue

Morrissey / Viva Hate Reissue

EMI will reissue Morrissey‘s debut solo album Viva Hate on 26 March.

Released in 1988, the album has been remastered by original producer Stephen Street, and controversially, the reissue removes The Ordinary Boys and replaces it with the song Treat Me Like a Human Being, a track which has appeared in demo form on the b-side  of the 2011 reissue of Glamorous Glue.

The original cover photo has been restored, although the typeface has been changed.

Record Store Day on 23 April will also see a limited edition remix of Suedehead in the form of a 10″ vinyl picture disc. Ron and Russel Mael (better known as Sparks) have created the remix which will also be available as a CD single. Extra tracks on the single come in the form of We’ll Let You Know (live) and Now My Heart Is Full (live) from 1995.
