Johnny Marr Says 'Hi Hello' to the Old Style in New Single, Video: Exclusive - Billboard


Johnny Marr is making a reintroduction to a new world on his latest single “Hi Hello” from his forthcoming third solo record Call The Comet.

‘It was one of the songs that just fell into my hands and mind as I was playing,” Marr tells Billboard. “The tune evoked something natural so I just followed it and it felt like I had to sing something personal, something we might all feel about someone sometime.”

The song loosely follows the overarching concept of the next record, which is informed by an alternate utopian reality, even as Marr looks ahead at a dystopian future. It calls back to some of the former Smiths songwriter’s most instinctive sensibilities with its jangly guitar and gloomy keyboard melodies, but they’re presented with a new depth that is distant yet inviting.

All the songs so far have been really good. He’s found how to use his voice with this album. I think it’ll be the first marr album where I don’t have to make myself enjoy it in any way or feel like I have to defend it in any way. Should be good
