“Fever Dreams Pts 1-4”; explores a multitude of concepts and themes. Because the wider world effectively shut down during its creation, Marr’s focus was pushed into both his interior life, and evoking the emotional and psychological states of others. “It’s an inspired record, and I couldn’t wait to get in and record every day,” he says. “But I had to go inwards.” As well as evoking the past and present, the album looks to the future, the idea that even in the most trying times, hope endures.

“There’s a set of influences and a very broad sound that I’ve been developing – really since getting out of The Smiths until now, and I hear it in this record,” Marr said in a statement about his new album.

“There are so many strands of music in it. We didn’t do that consciously, but I think I’ve got a vocabulary of sound. And I feel very satisfied that I’ve been able to harness it.”

Written and recorded at the Crazy Face Factory over the last year, ‘Fever Dreams Pts 1-4’ was created with Marr’s long-standing band: co-producer Doviak, bassist Iwan Gronow, drummer Jack Mitchell, and features backing vocals throughout the album from the Massachusetts-based singer-songwriter Meredith Sheldon, with three songs featuring bass from Primal Scream’s Simone Marie.

The record will follow on from his third solo album “Call The Comet”, which was released in June 2018. “Fever Dreams Pts 1-4” will be released on February 25th, 2022 via BMG and includes Marr‘s recent single “Spirit, Power and Soul”. The first quarter of the album will be released as the “Fever Dreams Pt 1” EP on Friday (October 15th).

Marr has also announced details of a new livestream, Live At The Crazy Face Factory, which will premiere online on November 10th and be available on-demand until November 14th. Curated by Marr, the livestream will offer his fans “the chance to step inside [Marr‘s] custom-built Crazy Face Factory studio where “Fever Dreams Pts 1-4″ was created”.

One-fourth of a bold new double album from the famed Smiths guitarist, solo artist, and occasional Modest Mouse bandmate, the Fever Dreams Pt. 2 EP looks to continue Johnny Marr’s impressive run of solo releases that began in 2011 (if you don’t count his one release with The Healers from 2003) with The Messenger. Marr is refining his sonic palette, as well: single “Sensory Street” has a throbbing ‘80s electro-soul vibe, while “Tenement Time” is a classic rocker straight from his past.

Marr will also “discuss his creative process and life in song writing, alongside a set of full-band live performances from across his career”.

Marr will tour with Blondie as a special guest on the latter’s Against The Odds tour in the UK next April.
