Johnny Marr North American Tour Underway, Shares New Track, “Jeopardy”

Today, Johnny Marr has shared a new song, “Jeopardy,” previously unavailable other than as a vinyl B-side, and is on DSPs today. He performs with his band for Seattle’s esteemed KEXP today at Noon. Listen live at The Smiths’ guitar legend and NME’s “God-Like Genius” award-winner is currently in the midst of a Fall US tour in support of his recently released album Call The Comet. Marr and his band have returned to North America post-album release for an extensive coast-to-coast run that includes Los Angeles, Brooklyn, Austin, Toronto and Boston, as well as Mexico City and more. Tickets are on-sale at and full list of dates is below.

Recorded with his band in Manchester at Marr’s Crazy Face Studios in Manchester, Call The Comet follows the critically acclaimed UK Top 10 albums The Messenger (2013) and Playland (2014). Says Marr: “Call The Comet is my own magic realism. It’s set in the not-too-distant future and is mostly concerned with the idea of an alternative society. The characters in the songs are searching for a new idealism, although there are some personal songs in there too. It’s something that people like me can relate to.”
