Artwork information:
The cd-single and digital artwork show a photo of Morrissey with Rick Astley taken backstage at Top Of The Pops in 1989.

The sleeve was originally going to feature a previously unseen private photograph of David Bowie and Morrissey taken by Linder Sterling in New York in 1992. Although Bowie has no legal rights to the photograph, most of his back catalogue was at the time licensed to EMI so he successfully managed to order EMI UK not to run the proposed artwork.
