Johnny Marr has released a new track, “The It-Switch”, which is a b-side to Marr’s new single “New Town Velocity,” a track from his celebrated solo debut The Messenger that was released earlier this year. Marr will return to the U.S. this fall, headlining a nationwide tour that kicks off on the West Coast on October 31 and includes a stop at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Festival.
The release of The Messenger marks a significant milestone in Marr’s distinguished career as his first true solo album of his career. First known for his work as the creative force behind The Smiths, Marr has spent the last two decades collaborating with a diverse array of acclaimed bands, including Talking Heads, Pet Shop Boys, The The, Electronic, Modest Mouse, The Cribs and more.
