Johnny Marr's new single 'Easy Money' will be premiered on BBC 6 Music tomorrow (August 15).

The song is taken from Marr's new album 'Playland', the follow-up to 2013's solo debut 'The Messenger'. Speaking about the themes of the song, Marr told Rolling Stone in a new interview that thinking about the pursuit of money led him to writing the song.

"I like the idea of sneaking a serious concern into the mainstream, disguised as a big pop tune," Marr said. "The riff was so catchy and infectious that I wanted it to be about something that appeared to be trite but was actually quite universal. Money is a preoccupation of everybody, and it took me quite a long time to write something that appeared to be simple. If you were to ask anybody in the City what they're after, essentially the root of it is money. It's the age-old thing of people thinking that it will make us happy."

The 'Playland' tracklisting is:

'Back In The Box'
'Easy Money'
'Dynamo'
'Candidate'
'25 Hours'
'The Trap'
'Playland'
'Speak Out Reach Out'
'Boys Get Straight'
'This Tension'
'Little King'
