The Smiths’ guitar legend and NME Godlike Genius Award-winner, Johnny Marr, has announced a third solo album, Call The Comet to be released June 15th. From the 12-track collection, he shares “The Tracers” today, described by Rolling Stone as “propulsive.”
Marr [says], “Call The Comet is my own magic realism. It’s set in the not-too-distant future and is mostly concerned with the idea of an alternative society. The characters in the songs are searching for a new idealism, although there are some personal songs in there too. It’s something that people like me can relate to.”
Recorded with his band in Manchester at Marr’s Crazy Face Studios in Manchester, Call The Comet follows the critically acclaimed Top 10 albums The Messenger (2013) and Playland (2014). Highlight tracks to come include “Actor Attractor,” “Walk Into The Sea,” “Bug” and “Spiral Cities,” the latter of which is already established as a favorite in Marr’s live shows. The album will be released on digital, CD and vinyl formats along with some special D2C bundle packages.
