Composer Hans Zimmer Says He'll Be Working On Johnny Marr's Next Album
Johnny Marr and film composer Hans Zimmer will be teaming up again for Marr's next album, NME reports. The two previously worked on the soundtracks for Inception and Spider-Man 2 but have never recorded an album together.
Zimmer revealed the news in an interview with Bang Showbiz saying:
"Johnny's got a plan. I don't want to talk about it too much, but he's roped me into something where we're going to be doing a bit of role reversal. I'm going to be his humble arranger, which is going to be fun. It will be a case of Johnny telling me what to do and I'll do it. It will be for his next album."
When exactly that album will drop has yet to be announced, but Marr is fairly prolific, so we might not have to wait too long.
Marr spoke about his admiration for Zimmer in an interview with Gigwise earlier this month.
"I've learned a lot from Hans about being able to really go somewhere dramatic with guitars," he told them. "And that would be the only thing I'm interested in besides what I'm doing now."
Marr released his second solo album Playland on September 29 and is hitting the road next week for a tour in support of the record.
