Johnny Marr keeps things real in his new video for “Upstarts”, the lead single off his forthcoming solo debut, The Messenger. It’s a performance video in what appears to be an airplane hanger, and it doesn’t get more straightforward than that. However, it’s good to know the veteran rocker has as much chutzpah as his former partner in crime. Watch the video below.
The Messenger hits stores February 26th via Sire/ADA (pre-order here). In support, Marr has announced a brief UK tour for March.
