Recorded with his band in Manchester at his Crazy Face studios, Call The Comet is the third solo record from former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, and follows the critically acclaimed The Messenger (2013) and Playland (2014), both of which made the UK top 10.
“Call The Comet is set in the not-too-distant future,” says Marr, “and is mostly concerned with the idea of an alternative society. It’s my own magic realism.” Songs include ‘Actor Attractor’, ‘Walk Into The Sea’, ‘Bug’, and recent live favourite ‘Spiral Cities’. “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.”
The LP is available on exclusive purple vinyl, only available from record shops.
