Johnny Marr – The Messenger

By Will Oliver, November 13th 2012 — with 1 comment Music Video New Video

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.

    Why would anyone question Johnny’s voice? He’s released albums where he sang all the songs before, i.e. Johnny Marr and the Healers Boomslang album. A very good little record. He sang all tracks and that came out over a decade now. If you like the Smiths you already know that. No surprises here my friend.
