Singer apologies for B-sides collection

Quietus favourite Morrissey has apologised to fans for his recent Swords compilation album after describing it as a "disaster".

Speaking on, he suggested that the B-sides collection - which charted at number 55 in the UK - was too expensive.

He said: "I am sorry that 'Swords' was such a meek disaster. It was proposed and accepted as a budget-priced CD, yet emerged everywhere as the most expensive CD in the racks.

"It was poorly distributed and didn't stand a chance, and ranks as the lowest chart position I've ever encountered."
