Moz 620x322 While you were sleeping: Morrissey played Letterman

While you might have already been dozing on your favorite spot on the couch after a long day at the office and an even longer evening wrangling a toddler into her bed, Morrissey performed his not-technically-new but not officially-released single Action Is My Middle Name on David Letterman’s late show stage last night (January 9th).

The appearance by the former Smith’s frontman turned solo-status icon promotes his string of North American dates through March (itinerary below).
