The genius musical polymath that is Johnny Marr continues his transition from the world’s greatest side-man into captivating solo artist with the release of Fever Dreams Pt 1-4.

Densely layered, beautiful arranged and exquisitely played throughout, Fever Dreams paints from a significantly weightier sound palate than previous offerings, adding synths, sequencers, drum loops and samples to Marr’s admirable vocals and inspired trademark multi-tracked guitars. Everything sounds taut, more urgent, and there’s genuine elation shot through these tracks that envelops the listener in a joyful noise.

With Fever Dreams Pt 1-4, the Manc maestro has dropped a record that comfortably sits alongside the best moments of his significant career…altogether rapturous, a monumental triumph.
