Speaking to the NME recently Johnny Marr gave fans a little more detail: “You’d know it if you’d seen me with the band on my first two solo records, but it’s a little more emotional, ‘out there’ and dramatic. The lyrics are a bit deeper. It’s mostly concerned with external things but there are a couple of personal songs on there for me. This time around, I had to imagine a society, rather than just report what I see.”

Interesting stuff...
