Morrissey has unveiled an unlikely collaboration with former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson.

The former Smiths frontman appears alongside the actress - who famously posed naked for Playboy - in a promotional video to promote his new album.

The pair, who are both ardent animal rights campaigners, appear in the short film which was shot on the roof of the Capitol Tower in Los Angeles, taking in the view over Hollywood at Sunset.

His new film is one of a series in which he has recited the lyrics to tracks from his forthcoming album World Peace Is None Of Your Business.

The video, which features the words to the song Earth Is The Loneliest Planet and was directed by Natalie Johns, was unveiled on the website today.

Morrissey recently revealed he had been approached about an appearance in long-running Radio 4 soap The Archers.

His new album, due out next month, is his first for five years. Last year he won acclaim for his memoir Autobiography.
