Last month, Johnny Marr brought his old friend and The The bandleader Matt Johnson onstage at the Roundhouse in London to perform a cover of the Lovin’ Spoonful’s classic 1966 single “Summer in the City” — their first time onstage together in 25 years.

Turns out they also recorded the song at soundcheck that night, and now have released it digitally.

In an email announcing the release, Marr says: “It’s been great to record with Matt again and to play alongside his amazing voice. The The is part of my life and we both always loved ‘Summer in the City.’ We’ve made it our own.”
