Johnny Marr Releases New Single, ‘Night and Day’
Johnny Marr has released Night And Day, the brand new single taken from the Fever Dreams Pt 3 EP – the third quarter of forthcoming double album, Fever Dreams Pts 1-4, due 25 February.
Speaking about the new single, the former Smiths guitarist said: “I need songs after all the news, news, news. It gets too real in the hotspots.” Night And Day features Simone Marie of Prinal Scream on guest vocals and bass. According to a statement, the song sees Johnny looking to make sense of the changes in day-to-day lives as a result of the global pandemic.
Night and Day and the themes of Fever Dreams Pts 1-4 look to the future, and the idea that even in the most trying times, hope endures. “I’m trying to be positive, for me and my audience, really,” Johnny adds. “My personality is such that it occurs to me to think that way. I’m not just writing with positivity for the sake of a song. It’s real, and it’s also very necessary.”
The Fever Dreams Pt 3 EP features four brand new songs from Johnny Marr’s anticipated double LP – The Speed Of Love, Night And Day, Counter-Clock World and Rubicon. The EP will be released on limited edition gold vinyl on 20 May and is avaialble to preorder HERE.
2022 will see Johnny Marr return to the live stage, joining Blondie as a special guest on their Against The Odds headline tour through April and May, including London’s O2 Arena, before heading out on The Killers’ headline US arena tour, beginning in August through to October.
