Ahead of two sold out homecoming shows at Manchester Albert Hall this September 4th and 5th to close a big summer season, Johnny Marr (The Smiths, Electronic) has revealed the official music video for new single, “The Bright Parade”.
Speaking about “The Bright Parade”, Johnny said: “This song is a commentary on a celebrity. The video’s narrative follows me and a friend pursued by an agent of the underworld coming to collect a debt after we traded our souls for fame.”
The track arrives amidst a busy summer festival season that’s already seen Johnny’s fifth appearance at Glastonbury, and surprise collaboration with The Killers to close their Pyramid Stage headline show.
Following the previous 2019 single, “Armatopia”, the summer has also seen acclaimed performances at festivals across the UK and Europe. Release Festival in Athens, Greece, saw former Electronic bandmate Bernard Sumner reunited with Johnny to perform their hit 1991 single, “Get The Message”.
With further festival appearances scheduled at Lowlands, Pukkelpop, Rock En Seine and more, Johnny will return to the UK for two sold out homecoming headline shows at Manchester Albert Hall this September 4th and 5th.
