Guitar god Johnny Marr has released the video for his new single Candidate. Have a look here.

The song is out on June 26 and it the latest single from his second solo album Playland.

Speaking about the genesis of Candidate, Marr said: “The day after I'd done the The Amazing Spider-Man 2 premiere concert, I was in Times Square watching passers-by on a huge screen up in the sky. 

“I had that opening line `Big screen real life/Be a part of the story.' That song's about a lot of the great women - of which there have been many, from being a little boy onwards - that have made the impression on me.”

Marr supports The Who and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds in upcoming outdoor summer shows.
