It comes as Marr announces a new double album, 'Fever Dreams Pts 1-4'

Johnny Marr has unveiled ‘Spirit, Power And Soul’, the first single from his upcoming new double album project.

The former Smiths guitarist will release a new four-track EP, ‘Fever Dreams Pt 1’, from his double-album on October 15 via BMG. It can be pre-ordered here.

Meanwhile, the release date fo the full double album, ‘Fever Dreams Pts 1-4’, is to be announced. The record will be Marr’s first since 2018’s ‘Call The Comet‘.


Speaking about the new single, Marr said: “’Spirit, Power And Soul’ is a kind of mission statement. I had an idea about an electro sound with gospel feeling, in my own words… an electro soul anthem.”

The September shows will mark Marr’s first live performances since he joined Billie Eilishand Hans Zimmer at the 2019 BRIT Awards to perform the James Bond theme ‘No Time To Die’.
