Good news for Smiths' fans -- not only will Morrissey release a new solo album this year, but now Johnny Marr confirms he's releasing his new album, the follow up to 2013's The Messenger, this fall. Marr was at the NME Awards last night and gave the mag the scoop:

"I've got a new record coming out in the end of September, the follow-up to last year's," he said. "I wanted to do the second one really quick. For me, it was just about being on tour and wanting to capture the spirit of the band and the audience before it wears off. I'd been touring for 11 months so I wanted to keep that same energy. I didn't want to overthink it."

Check out NME's report here.

FYI: Marr did another interview with Absolute Radio yesterday and told them the album is coming out in October, so expect a late September/early October release date if things stay on schedule.  Marr also told Absolute Radio he's busy working on the Spiderman soundtrack (he's a big Spiderman fan!) and "something else" he's forgotten. He also sang the praises of Blondie, who were honored with the Godlike Genius Award last night.  Watch the interview with Marr below.



Marr was at the NME Awards to present Arctic Monkeys with the award for Best British Band.  How awkward would it have been for him to give out the award for Best Book -- Morrissey's Autobiography was the winner, though he wasn't at the ceremony.  Other winners at the NME Awards: The Stone Roses film Made of Stone won Best Music Film, Damon Albarn was named Best Innovator, the Clash collection Sound System was named Best Reissue, and Blondie was presented the Godlike Genuis Award.
