Last week legendary Smiths member Johnny Marr announced that he was going solo, and releasing his debut album which would be titled The Messenger. It’s coming out February 26 via Sire/ADA.
He has released the title track from the album, and it sounds great. Not that I would ever doubt Johnny Marr’s ability as a musician, but I wasn’t sure what to expect from him as a solo musician. Any questions about Marr as the main vocalist are instantly put to rest, as he can certainly carry his own weight. As expected the guitar work is top tier. The man has a good ear, and it shows in the songs deliciously British melody.
Marr has released it in the form of a music video. Check that out below.
