Listen to "The Right Thing Right" from Johnny Marr's Solo Debut

Late in October, former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr officially announced the release of his debut solo album, The Messenger. Earlier today we were given an idea of what to expect from the forthcoming album’s sound, as Rolling Stone premiered the song “The Right Thing Right.”

“It is late in the day to be making my debut,” Marr told NME, speaking of the album. “I didn’t want to be in someone else’s band at this point. In the past I might have been reluctant to stand up front, and I’ve been lucky enough to be in bands with great singers, so it wasn’t necessary. But this is my band now, and the frontman in my band has to play guitar. I do both.”

The Messenger is scheduled to hit shelves Feb. 26. Listen to “The Right Thing Right” below.
