Johnny Marr, The Messenger

Always the sideman, never the frontman…until now.

Listen: New Johnny Marr Track From Solo Album

Johnny Marr- lead guitarist extraordinaire, best known as a member of The Smiths but also for his work in Electronic and with Modest Mouse- is releasing his first proper solo debut, The Messenger, on February 25. Yes, his signature guitar work is prominently featured, but this time, he’s also singing. No Moz, no Issac, no Bernard… just Johnny.

The title track is pure Brit rock. You can really dig into his guitar work, but it’s also cool to hear him sing as well.

 

Also from The Messenger  is Upstarts. It hints at the classic Manchester scene sound he so firmly created with the Smiths, and yet still sounds current. Great music. Definitely music you should love.
