Johnny Marr has released the first EP from his upcoming double album, Fever Dreams Pts 1-4. set for release on February 25th, 2022 via BMG. Pre-order now: https://
It's Marr's first new music since his UK Top Ten solo album The Comet (2018).
Said the legendary guitarist: "There’s a set of influences and a very broad sound that I’ve been developing – really since getting out of The Smiths until now, and I hear it in this record. There are so many strands of music in it. We didn’t do that consciously, but I think I’ve got a vocabulary of sound. And I feel very satisfied that I’ve been able to harness it."
The first part of the album, Fever Dreams Pt 1, features four tracks including 'Spirit Power and Soul,' 'Receiver,' 'All These Days' and 'Ariel.' Available now here: https://
Fusing the language of soul music with his roots as a “Mancunian glam rocker”, the new EP reflects Marr's multifaceted past, but takes his music somewhere startlingly new.
The 16-track double album will be available in a limited edition white vinyl, cassettes, and signed prints from Marr's official store as well as a limited edition turquoise vinyl exclusive to independent record stores.
Fans who pre-order the album through the official store will get access to exclusive pre-sale livestream tickets before they go on general sale on Wednesday 20th October 2021.
The livestream, titled Live At The Crazy Face Factory, premieres on November 10.
Curated by Marr himself, the livestream allows fans the chance to step inside his custom-built Crazy Face Factory studio where Fever Dreams Pts 1-4 was created. Marr will also discuss his creative process and life in songwriting, alongside a set of full-band live performances from across his career.
