Johnny Marr has announced details of a UK tour in October.

Marr, who was the recipient of the Godlike Genius award at the NME Awards 2013 and released his debut solo album 'The Messenger' earlier this year, will play nine dates across the UK – calling in at Gloucester, Wrexham, Newcastle, Manchester, Leeds, Wolverhampton, Nottingham, Bristol and London.

Also announced today (June 17) are details of Marr's new single 'New Town Velocity', which will be released on July 22. "It’s about reconnecting with the feelings I had growing up, the ones which shape you," he explained to NME.

Johnny Marr will play:

Gloucester Guildhall (October 4)
Wrexham Central Station (5)
Newcastle O2 Academy (6)
Manchester Academy 1 (12)
Leeds Metropolitan University (13)
