Apparently, the answer to the question “How Soon Is Now?” is A$AP.

Rapper A$AP Rocky has revealed in an interview with GQ that his upcoming album, All Smiles, features writing, production and vocals from Morrissey.

“Anything you need him to do, he show up and do,” Rocky says of the former The Smiths frontman.

Morrissey, of course, has been making headlines lately for pretty much everything but his music, including for supporting For Britain, a far-right U.K. political party, and for claiming he was dropped from his label due to “diversity” reasons. He’s also been in the news over the past month after his manager posted a statement blasting The Simpsons for portraying its Morrissey parody character as an overweight racist who now eats meat because he “found out veganism was invented by foreigners.”
