New Entry: Johnny Marr Premieres New Single "The Bright Parade"

Johnny Marr, former guitarist of The Smiths and top indie legend, has premiered his new single "The Bright Parade".

On how shows like 'Love Island' inspired the track, Marr explained: "I think this track is more of a story. "'Armatopia' was this kind of eco-disco and I didn't want to hide that, but 'The Bright Parade' is more of a psychedelic musical track.

"Maybe I've been quite preoccupied with the cosmos over the last couple of years but it's the perfect metaphor for the star system - whether that's a rock star or a movie star or a reality TV star. I think half my mind was still in the cosmos and the other half was around these vacuous modern day reality stars.

"''The Bright Parade' puts the two together and puts it on top of a psychedelic backing track. But everything I'm doing as a musician and a creative person is some kind of reaction to what's going on in the world, if only as a way to escape. The act of getting in a studio and recording and making music with a band does feel a necessary escape from what's going on."

The song is out today (August 8). Grab it here, and stream it below.
