Morrissey’s been putting an unusual spin on the lyric video as we approach the release of World Peace is None of Your Business, his follow-up to 2009’s Years of Refusal. Instead of putting a simple text animation over an audio track, Morrissey’s been putting arty visual clips to spoken-word recitations of his own lyrics. The latest, for “Earth Is the Loneliest Planet,” features a cameo appearance by Pamela Anderson. She and Moz share a moment on a rooftop. It’s… a little weird. But definitely a fascinating 55 seconds of video. Watch it below.
