New Music: Johnny Marr- The Messenger + Music Video
Twenty five years after the break up of The Smiths, Johnny Marr has finally released a solo LP. His list of credits is very long since 1987. The busy man has formed bands (Electronic, The Healers), has joined bands (The The, The Pretenders, Modest Mouse, The Cribs), and even helped score a movie (Inception) but he has never done anything for himself, until now. After living in Portland for several years, Marr grew homesick for Manchester and his new album, The Messenger, was born out of his return to his native city. The new LP will be available February 26th via Sire/ADA.
Meanwhile, Marr has just come out with the title track for the album and accompanying music video. Nice song that showcases the guitar work of the legendary axeman. The music video is a simple black and white scene of Marr walking through the woods and on to a beach. Watch and listen below:
For fans of The Smiths, Edwyn Collins and Richard Hawley.
