Johnny Marr has shared a new remix of his recent single ‘Armatopia’, after the track was given a re-imagining by Teleman.
The track first emerged last month as Marr’s first offering of 2019 – with the legendary guitarist describing it as “Eco-Disco for 2019.”
Now, he’s shared a remix of the song after enlisting the help of Teleman’s Peter Cattermoul.
“I like Teleman and thought their approach would suit the vibe of Armatopia. Pete did a great job of re-imagining the song in his own way,” said Johnny.
Peter Cattermoul added: “When Johnny Marr asked Teleman to do a mix for Armatopia I was very excited. He’s a hugely influential artist so I wanted to do it justice. We spoke on the phone about it and he said he wanted the
‘Teleman Sound’, which was really cool. So I did what I thought would work on a Teleman track and had fun with it. Fun fact: I used a Rhodes Chroma (which was previously used on ‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’) for some of the synth parts.”
This comes ahead of Marr heading out on a US tour later this year – the dates for that can be seen below.

Marr’s last album came in 2018’s ‘Call The Comet.’
NME wrote in a four-star review: “‘Call The Comet’ is Marr’s most assured solo effort to date. Rather than wallow in the mire of now, Marr has dreamt of a better tomorrow. In doing so, he’s built one for himself.”
