Johnny Marr names new solo LP

Johnny Marr names new solo LP
Johnny Marr has named his forthcoming album ‘Call the Comet’, but sadly that isn’t a reference to a Final Fantasy combat cut scene. However, it is just as sci-fi as that…
 
Here’s Marr explaining to NME what his third solo album is all about: “It’s mostly concerned with external things but there are a couple of personal songs on there for me. This time around, I had to imagine a society, rather than just report what I see.”
 
Indeed, “There’s some H.G. Wells in there. I’ve been reading a lot of interesting stuff from the early 20th Century. It’s not quite utopian, but it’s imagining a new kind of society. That’s how I felt going into it at the start of last year… Rather than feeling like it was too bleak as reportage or commentary about what I see outside, it’s kept the psycho-geography of the first two records but I had to reimagine it. I don’t want those fuckers contaminating my creativity.”
