Johnny Marr's new single "The Tracers" is steeped in his hometown of Manchester's post-punk roots, with a driving bassline and jagged guitars. The single's video echos that vibe, with Johnny and his band driving down a desolate road in a vintage Ford Corsair GT, before ending up at an abandoned factory. Johnny co-directed it with Mat Bancroft and it premieres in this post. Watch below.
