Morrissey may be suffering setbacks on the road again, but there is some good news for his fans: The Smiths have a new 7-inch single on the way.

According to fansite True To You, the upcoming project will contain two previously unreleased tracks. The A-side is a demo mix of The Queen is Dead single “The Boy With the Thorn in His Side”. The B-side, meanwhile, is an unearthed rendition of “Rubber Ring”.

The artwork, which can be seen below, was designed by Morrissey himself and features a photograph of Oscar-nominated English actor Albert Finney (Murder on the Orient Express, Erin Brockovich). More details on the 7-inch, including an official release date, are forthcoming.
