Johnny Marr’s 3rd album ‘Call the Comet’ due in June — hear 1st single ‘The Tracers’

Johnny Marr’s third proper solo album — a 12-song collection titled Call the Comet — will be released June 15, and fans can now get their first earful of the ex-Smiths guitar-slinger’s new sounds via first single “The Tracers,” which just hit streaming platforms.

The new solo effort, now available for pre-order in digital formats, follows Marr’s debut The Messenger in 2013 and its follow-up Playland in 2014. Marr finally began recording under just his own name after spending his post-Smiths years playing with a variety of bands, including Talking Heads, The Pretenders, Electronic, The The, Modest Mouse, The Cribs and more.

  1. Is Mike Joyce behind the kit? Those drums sound very reminiscent of “The Queen Is Dead”.

  2. The cover looks like a KISS solo record
