The former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr is about to follow up last year’s The Messenger with Playland, only his second proper solo album. And today, he gives us the video for the revved-up first single “Easy Money.” The video has a great deal of fun with the idea of Marr and his black-clad cool-guy bandmates strutting through a run-down, nearly abandoned English seaside resort town. We see them in tiny casinos and empty pubs and convenience stores, always looking completely aloof, despite the shittiness of their surroundings. David Barnes directs. Check it out below.
Playland is out 10/7 on Warner Music Group.
