Johnny Marr has announced details of ‘Single Life’, a limited edition 7 Box Set featuring Johnny’s first ten solo single releases, due or release on December 6th.
‘Single Life’ marks the close of the ‘Call The Comet’ tour, an 18-month run that’s seen Johnny complete a full tour across North America, major summer festival appearances and sold-out headline shows across the UK and Europe in 2019 alone. Acclaimed performances at All Points East, Glastonbury, Nile Rodgers’ Meltdown, Edinburgh Summer Sessions, Mad Cool, Pukkelpop and many more saw early 2019 single ‘Armatopia’ fast confirmed a new live favourite.
Johnny’s fifth appearance at Glastonbury saw a career-spanning Other Stage set, as well as a surprise collaboration with The Killers to close the Pyramid Stage, dubbed “one of the most high-octane and spine-tingling moments of the festival” by The i Newspaper. Summer headline gigs across the UK also included a memorable performance at Exeter’s Lemon Grove where, in a now-viral video clip, Johnny invited an eager young fan on stage to join him for a rendition of ‘This Charming Man’.
Due this December 6th, ‘Single Life’ celebrates Johnny’s first ten solo single releases to date, including highlights from 2018’s ‘Call The Comet’. The album achieved both the highest chart position (#7) and the strongest reviews of three albums to date.
