Johnny Marr… the man, the legend, the guitarist. He became one of the greatest songwriters of his generation thanks to his work with Morrissey and The Smiths, crafting songs like There Is A Light That Never Goes Out, This Charming Man, How Soon Is Now and many more.
He’s also been an in-demand guest musician for the likes of Modest Mouse, The The, The Pretenders and Paul McCartney. He was even one of The Cribs! And, earlier this year, the NME gave him the Godlike Genius Award.
2013 saw Johnny strike out alone for his first solo album, The Messenger, which was released to great critical acclaim and the new single, New Town Velocity has just hit the XFM playlists.
Here, Johnny and his band showcase material from The Messenger and even debut a new song, The It Switch.
Produced, engineered and mixed by Chris Denman.
