"Johnny Marr is set to mark this year’s Record Store Day with a numbered limited edition 7” release of his interpretation of Depeche Mode’s 1993 classic ‘I Feel You’. Marr played the track live during the closing shows of last December’s North American tour. The single’s b-side is a live version of The Smiths’ ‘Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want’."
Love Candidate. My most favourite song from "Playland".
I sometimes get mad that Johnny has only really been a "solo" artist for the last 3-4 years. He could have been pumping out tunes like this since the late 80s if he wished.
I can never be mad at Johnny , but I know what you mean. Probably he just loved to work with other bands/musicians and didn't want to be a front man. He's a modest guy, but kind of a "changing man". Joined Modest Mouse and make one album, then off he goes. Joined The Cribs and made one album, then off he goes again. He might stop being a solo after a couple of albums and joins another band again or restart The Healers?, I don't know. All I know is, that I'll support this guy whatever he does.
Judging from the tracklist, I'm sure it'll be great!
