Johnny Marr has announced details of Single Life, a limited edition 7” Box Set featuring Johnny’s first ten solo single releases, due for release on 6 December.

From 2012’s Upstarts to 2018’s Spiral Cities, and new live favourite Armatopia, the release also contains vinyl debuts for promo-only track The Messenger, backed with an exclusive unreleased demo version of New Town Velocity. All ten 7” singles are pressed onto coloured vinyl and the set is completed by two limited edition photographic prints, exclusive to Single Life.

On his 18-month Call The Comet tour, acclaimed performances at All Points East, Glastonbury, Nile Rodgers’ Meltdown, Edinburgh Summer Sessions, Mad Cool, and Pukkelpop saw early 2019 single Armatopia fast confirmed as new live must-see.

Summer headline gigs across the UK also included a memorable performance at Exeter’s Lemon Grove where, in a now viral video clip, Johnny invited an eager young fan on stage to join him for a rendition of This Charming Man.

Due 6 December, Single Life celebrates Johnny’s first ten solo single releases to date, including highlights from 2018’s ‘Call The Comet’. The album achieved both the highest chart position (#7) and the strongest reviews of three albums to date, dubbed “a triumph” by The Guardian and “articulate and direct” by The Line Of Best Fit. ‘Single Life’ is available to pre-order HERE.

Packaged in a metallic silver printed shoulder box with original 7” vinyl reproduction artwork and inserts, and two exclusive 7” photographic art prints, ‘Single Life’ includes ten individually coloured 7” vinyl singles detailed as follows:
