After his band the Smiths broke up, guitarist Johnny Marr spent many years as a wandering axe-for-hire. He released one album with his backing band the Healers, but he’s spent more time as a temporary supporting player in bands like Electronic and Modest Mouse and the Cribs. Lately, though, he’s thrown himself completely into his solo career. His new Playland, out next week, is Marr’s second true solo album, and it’s also his second in as many years. We’ve posted the early tracks “Easy Money” and “The Trap.” And now, if you’ve got Spotify, you can stream the whole thing below.
Playland is out 10/7 on Warner Music Group.
