Johnny Marr Performs Smiths Track During Radio Appearance

While making his way around the media circuit to promote his forthcoming solo album, Johnny Marr stopped by Dermot O’Leary’s BBC Radio 2 show to perform some of his new material.

Last month he released a video for the first single, “The Messenger.” During his appearance on O’Leary’s show, Marr performed a new track called “New Town Velocity.” Not only did Marr perform new material, but he also sent fans spiraling down a tunnel of nostalgia when he performed one of The Smiths’ classic tracks, “Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want.”

Listen to Marr’s rendition of the classic ‘80s tune below, and click here to hear all of his appearance on O’Leary’s broadcast. You can pick up your copy of The Messenger on Feb. 26.
