Legendary Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr has released his first video off his upcoming solo record.
Marr announced his solo record in late October, leaving fans eager to hear what new music Marr could come up with. Now, the wait is finally over, the first track and video released is “The Messenger.” It features a great guitar solo from Marr (Would you expect anything else?) and begs the question “who wants to be a messenger?”
The forthcoming solo record will appropriately be called The Messenger and will have 12 new tracks from him and will be out Feb. 26. So while the Smith’s reunion looks more than a little grim, at least we have new music from Marr.
