Legendary Smiths guitarist and acclaimed solo artist Johnny Marr releases his new album 'Call The Comet' on June 15th and plays the Varsity Theater on Sept. 17.
Recorded with his band at Marr’s Crazy Face Studios in Manchester, Call The Comet is his third solo record and follows the critically acclaimed Top 10 albums The Messenger (2013) and Playland (2014).
“Call The Comet is my own magic realism,” says Marr. “It’s set in the not-too-distant future and is mostly concerned with the idea of an alternative society. The characters in the songs are searching for a new idealism, although there are some personal songs in there too. It’s something that people like me can relate to.”
