Johnny Marr Posts Video For New Single Armatopia

Friday, 22 February 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Johnny Marr has shared his first new music of 2019.

Armatopia is among the ex-Smith guitarist's most synthy and poppy solo work to date and serves as his first new material since last year's 'Call The Comet'. He said:

"Armatopia is the odd state we find the ecology and ourselves in today. Have those in control made people feel like there’s only one thing left they can do? 'We’re smoking till we burn out’, so we dance and party. It’s Eco-Disco for 2019."

The track was produced by India Lee, while its video was directed by Kris Rimmer, who explained the inspiration behind it:

"Johnny and I wanted to work with the idea that even when the future of a person seems bleak and uncertain, they can still choose to pursue pleasure and self-indulgence. In this case, that hedonism is embodied in our four main characters. We chose the derelict tower block to contrast their eccentricities and followed them on a journey to "the last place on earth left open". There seems to be something quite significant about finding romance in the last days of existence."

Marr recently announced a 19-date North American solo tour for the spring, kicking off in late April and wrapping up in Los Angeles in May. Following that he'll support the Strokes at All Points East in London and appear at the Edinburgh Summer Sessions.
