PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) have put together a new animated short film titled Someday. The cartoon is set to the 1992 track I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday from the famously vegetarian singer-songwriter Morrissey. The animated feature will be played at the start of Morrissey's concerts this year; it is also available on the PETA website and via the campaign group's YouTube channel.
The video, Billboard reports, is animated by Anna Saunders and follows the dreary life of a newborn chick snatched from its mother and raised in a dark-caged existence.
Morrissey has long been a campaigner for animal rights, both as a member of The Smiths and as a solo artist. Via his concerts, Morrissey raises awareness about issues ranging from the fur trade to factory farm cruelty.
As an aside, Morrissey has released a new album this week called World Peace is None of Your Business. The album has generally received high critical acclaim. The album includes a swipe a bullfighting, with a track mischievously titled The Bullfighter Dies.
