Johnny Marr has said that his new album is "more rowdy" than his debut.

The former Smiths guitarist is currently working on the follow-up to his 2013 solo album 'The Messenger', which has been recorded in London and New York.

"If anything, the new one is a bit more rowdy," he tells NME in this week's magazine, which is on newsstands from tomorrow (June 11) and will also be available digitally. "But I don't really want it to be too different. I like 'The Messanger' a lot and I don't think now is the time to go off on some radical reinvention just for the sake of it. That would almost feel too contrived. I haven’t gone off anywhere with my yoga mat to meditate and take a deep look at my inner self to share with the world. I just formed a rock 'n' roll band who play uptempo music and I want to continue that way for a long time. I'm not too into navel-gazing music!"

Speaking about the influence behind the record, he added: "Most of it was recorded in London and New York, which has a direct effect on the music. I try to get influenced by my environment as much as possible. That's why I'm recording in London. It's got this hyperactivity to it that I wanted to put into the music."

Johnny Marr will embark on a UK tour this October. He will tour his 2013 solo album 'The Messenger' on a lengthy jaunt around the country, including a homecoming show at Manchester's O2 Apollo on October 25. The tour starts in Lincoln on October 13 and concludes in Leeds 16 days later.
