Legendary Smiths guitarist and acclaimed solo artist Johnny Marr will release his new album Call The Comet on June 15th, which is now available for pre-order here.

Recorded with his band at Marr’s Crazy Face Studios in Manchester, Call The Comet is his third solo record and follows the critically acclaimed UK Top 10 albums The Messenger (2013) and Playland (2014).

“Call The Comet is my own magic realism,” says Marr. “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.”

The album is lead by new single "The Tracers", other highlights include "Actor Attractor", "Walk Into The Sea", "Bug" and "Spiral Cities", the latter of which is already established as a favourite in Marr’s live shows.
