The good news for Morrissey fans? The artist isn't done touring in support of his latest Sanctuary album, "Ringleader of the Tormentors," having just confirmed a five-date run in Germany that will begin Dec. 12 in Frankfurt.

The bad news? No North American dates have been announced, although in a recent post on authoritative fan site True to You, Morrissey hints that a show in St. Louis is scheduled for November.

The artist also let slip that legendary composer Ennio Morricone has asked him to "sing and supply words" for a piece that will be presented at New York's Carnegie Hall on an as-yet-unannounced date. Morricone previously supplied string arrangements on the "Ringleader" track "Dear God Please Help Me."

Here are Morrissey's German tour dates:

Dec. 12: Frankfurt (Jahrhunderthalle)
Dec. 13: Munich (Zenith
Dec. 15: Dusseldorf (Philipshalle)
Dec. 17: Berlin (Arena Treptow)
Dec. 18: Hamburg (Color Line Arena)
