The track, which you can listen to below, features Primal Scream’s Simone Marie on bass and vocals.
“I need songs after all the news, news, news. It gets too real in the hotspots,” said Marr of the track.
“I’m trying to be positive, for me and my audience, really. My personality is such that it occurs to me to think that way. I’m not just writing with positivity for the sake of a song. It’s real, and it’s also very necessary.”
The track will feature on the former Smiths man’s forthcoming ‘Fever Dreams Pt 3’ EP, alongside the tracks ‘The Speed Of Love’, ‘Counter-Clock World’ and ‘Rubicon’. The EP will also be released on limited edition gold vinyl on May 20, which you can pre-order here.
It will also feature on Marr’s his forthcoming double album, ‘Fever Dreams Pts 1-4’, which is out on February 25, via BMG.
Marr recently spoke to NME about the upcoming LP, saying: “It felt like a big undertaking, and I think it sounds like a big undertaking.
“For me, the album and the whole experience has been expansive, ironically – at a time that’s been so much about seclusion. The ideas and the sound reflect that.”
He continued: “I wanted to come back from the last album with something extremely up-tempo and energetic. A little bit of me thinks that my peers and I are almost expected to coast along with mid-tempo, earnest rock music. I wasn’t at all feeling like putting my feet up and getting some slippers. That never occurred to me.”
He previously released ‘Fever Dreams Pt 2’ EP last month.
