Johnny Marr returned this week with new music, debuting “Spirit Power & Soul” off his upcoming 4-song EP Fever Dreams Pt. 1. You can hear the song via the video below, and the EP — out Oct. 15 — is available for preorder digitally and as on limited-edition silver vinyl.
The track is the ex-Smiths guitarist’s first new music since his 2019 non-album singles “Armatopia” and “The Bright Parade.” Marr’s last album was Call the Comet, released in 2018. He has a short run of U.K. tour dates set for later this month, and will open for The Killers’ North American arena tour in 2022.
Here’s the new song — plus the new EP’s cover art and tracklist:
Johnny Marr, Fever Dreams Pt. 1
