The Manchester icon will hit the road in support of his new album ‘Call The Comet’. Marr called ‘Call The Comet’ his “own magic realism.” “It’s set in the not-too-distant future and is mostly concerned with the idea of an alternative society,” he said. “The characters in the songs are searching for a new idealism, although there are some personal songs in there too. It’s something that people like me can relate to.”
