‘Call The Comet’ is Johnny’s third solo album, following 2013’s ‘The Messenger’ and ‘Playland’, released in 2014. It’s out on 15th June.
“Call The Comet’ is my own magic realism,” he says. “It’s set in the not-too-distant future and is mostly concerned with the idea of an alternative society. 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.”
The track listing is:
Day In Day Out
Walk Into The Sea
A Different Gun
