Johnny Marr's New Album, Song, and Video

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Mon, Jan 14, 2013 at 10:59 AM

Here's the new video from Johnny Marr, who some people know as the legendary UK guitarist from the Smiths. You, however, know Marr as a local face around town—he's been a Portland resident since 2005—and as sometime guitarist for Modest Mouse and the Cribs. "Upstarts" is the first single from his solo debut album, The Messenger, which comes out on February 26. He recorded it in his original hometown of Manchester and also in Berlin, and if this track is any indication, it'll exhibit big, brash pop songwriting with Marr's stylish and influential guitar work.
