Morrissey will never record for a "grown-up record label" again.

The former Smiths frontman - who is currently unsigned after his contract with Universal ended in late 2009 - doesn't feel there is any chance he will ever be offered another deal with a major label.

In a post on website True-to-you.net he wrote: "I now no longer expect to live long enough to experience an offer to record for a grownup label. This topic would not sound quite so banal had I not mentioned it 47 times already. I promise I will not mention it again.

"The world, I expect, will somehow endure, even as the follow-up to 'Years of Refusal' grows less and less likely. End of subject. I promise."

Morrissey has recently finished a tour of the US and Mexico, and while he had nothing but praise for his Mexican fans and the venues he played, he wasn't quite so impressed with the US.

He said: "We had been over-cautioned so continuously about dangers in Mexico, yet we met nothing at all but great support and warmth. The audiences were the most loving (and loud) that I have ever experienced. Everywhere we went people were very gracious, and eager to help. It was a dream tour, and we all felt that we were resolutely home, burdened only by the practicalities of wondering how soon we could return.

"BELLY FLOP: The Shrine, Los Angeles. When it goes wrong, it certainly goes wrong, and this venue is an open slum. Degradingly, the front of the hall is an orchestra pit so lowered that I found myself singing to a mass of hair. The people at the front - who possibly paid the most - were quite literally down a hole. It was embarrassing for me, and surely humiliating for them."
