Published Aug 31, 2021Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr has unveiled plans for a new four-part double album titled Fever Dreams. Part 1 of the release will arrive on October 15 through BMG, and today, we're getting a sneak peek of what's to come with a new single titled "Spirit, Power and Soul."
"'Spirit, Power And Soul' is a kind of mission statement," Marr said of the track in a statement. "I had an idea about an electro sound with gospel feeling, in my own words… an electro soul anthem."
While the other three parts have yet to receive official release dates, press materials reveal that the record will reflect the artist's "multifaceted past," while taking his music "somewhere startlingly new."
The forthcoming record marks Marr's first since 2019, following the release of "Armatopia." His latest record was 2018's Call the Comet.
