Morrissey's new concert film, Morrissey: 25 Live, saw a limited worldwide theatrical release back in Aug., and will arrive on DVD and Blu-ray later this month, on Oct. 22.

25: Live, Moz's first official film release since 2005's Who Put The M In Manchester?, captures the singer's intimate March 2 performance at Hollywood High School in Los Angeles, amidst a tour plagued by illness, postponement, and, ultimately, cancelation. The film also celebrates Morrissey's 25th anniversary as a solo artist, and includes behind the scenes footage and an intro from comedian Russell Brand.

Morrissey: 25 Live is available now for pre-order, and, given the singer's rocky tour history in recent months, it might be the closest thing to a live Morrissey performance we will see for awhile.

Below, watch a clip from the film, of the singer performing The Smiths' 1984 classic “Still Ill,” from their eponymous debut:
