Stereogum: "The Smiths’ Johnny Marr & Andy Rourke Are On A New Song Together For The First Time In 35 Years" (November 17, 2022)


Do not hold your breath waiting for Johnny Marr and Morrissey to collaborate in any capacity again, but those holding out for some form of Smiths reunion can exhale. When Marr opened for the Killers at Madison Square Garden in September, Smiths bassist Andy Rourke joined him for a run through “How Soon Is Now?” and “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out.” Now Marr and Rourke have appeared on a song together for the first time in 35 years.

And vice versa, I'd dare to say.
Songs like "I bury the living", just the first example that comes to my mind, can be judged whatever you like, but not trivial. Same for many other songs. You may not like them, but at least the man is trying, and it is Morrissey, unmistakably. The last 6 Steven's albums are quite different one another, in sound and styles.
