Legendary Smiths guitarist and acclaimed solo artist Johnny Marr is embarking on a major tour in support of his new album ‘Call The Comet’ which will be released on 15 Jun.
Recorded with his band at Marr’s Crazy Face Studios in Manchester, ‘Call The Comet’ is his third solo record and follows the critically acclaimed Top 10 albums ‘The Messenger’ (2013) and ‘Playland’ (2014).
'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.' Johnny Marr
