WATCH: Morrissey Performs ‘Action is My Middle Name’ on ‘Letterman’

The Moz on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman.’

The same day David Bowie emerged from his decade-long exile (January 8), Morrissey popped up on The Late Show with David Letterman, lassoing his microphone cord, surrounded by his studly band in fitted button-up shirts, performing his new tune “Action is My Middle Name” (a cut off his long-delayed album). The appearance was a teaser for the continuation of his North American tour, which had been interrupted by his mother’s illness. She’s apparently doing better now, and he has resumed tour dates with a concert tonight in Brookville, New York.

Watch and enjoy. The man can still rock a printed butterfly collar with the best of ’em:

Are you still a Morrissey fan?

While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
