Earlier this month, Marr announced that he’d signed a new worldwide album deal with the music publisher BMG, and has now teased new music seemingly from that forthcoming album.
“I’m back… we’re back. New music. Let’s go,” Marr wrote on Twitter today (August 26) alongside a snippet of new music featuring an electronic drum beat and visuals of Marr in what looks like a new music video.

Marr is currently working on new music in the studio, and will next play a string of intimate tour dates in the UK in September.
Those gigs will serve as a warm-up for his support slot at the Courteeners’ sold-out show at Manchester’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground on September 25.
The new music would be Marr’s first solo efforts since 2019 singles “The Bright Parade” and eco-disco track “Armatopia”.
Reviewing his last full-length album, 2018’s Call The Comet, Uncut wrote: “It might be best to appreciate Call The Comet as a sublime soundtrack, possibly the most atmospheric, widescreen guitar album you’ll hear all year.
“With maybe only Paul Weller as a peer, he’s still refusing to look back, to reform, to trade on his awesome back pages. Almost 40 years on, he’s still unmistakeably the cocksure kid from that ’80s clothes shop making his own demands on the future.”
