The The debut first new single in 15 years featuring Johnny Marr - LISTEN

On Record Store Day 2017, English post-punk band The The will release its first new single in 15 years, a track called “We Can’t Stop What’s Coming”.

As a tribute to frontman Matt Johnson’s late brother, the single will be released on 7'' vinyl and limited to 2,000 copies.

Johnson debuted the song on Steve Lamacq’s BBC Radio 6 program: the new track finds Johnson joined by former band members Zeke Manyika on percussion, James Eller on bass, and Johnny Marr (the Smiths' guitarist).

The song remembers Johnson’s brother Andrew “Andy Dog” Johnson, who passed away in January 2016 and designed much of band’s artwork over the years - including the “We Can’t Stop What’s Coming” sleeve itself, which features etchings from his sketchbooks.
