Artwork information:
Morrissey at the time of recording of the "World Peace Is None Of Your Business" album. The original image was taken in Avignon, France near the La Fabrique studio where the latter album was recorded, but the background was changed for this album's artwork. The image on some formats/origin was more altered than on others, showing a bad case of Photoshop's clone stamp tool in the form repeated patterns on the wall to Morrissey's right (our left). The artwork for the deluxe 2-cd edition suffers from this, but not the LP format.
