Morrissey & Rick Astley Grace Reissued "Last Of The Famous International Playboys" Single

This is pretty sexy. Morrissey and Rick Astley met in the late '80s backstage at BBC music staple Top Of The Pops and posed for the above photo. And with Moz reissuing his fantastic 1989 "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys" single (out April 8, along with a reissue of his 1991 Kill Uncle album), the pic is gracing the cover.

Pitchfork reports that a never-before-seen photo of Morrissey with David Bowie was the singer's first choice for the cover art, but Bowie, whose first album in 10 years, The Next Day, is out tomorrow, wouldn't grant permission.

The next best thing, if you ask me.
