We've given you images, we've teased you, but now it's time for the real thing. ShortList presents the world exclusive new video for Johnny Marr's new single: New Town Velocity.

A fans' favourite from the critically-acclaimed album The Messenger, this beautiful track features Johnny's trademark melodic guitar sound, with lyrics referencing his decision to quit school for music at the age of 15. Appropriately, the David Barnes-directed promo sees Marr in and around different areas of Manchester, including Wythenshawe, the place where he grew up.

The single is released on Monday (July 22) and October sees Johnny embark on a headline UK tour, including a date at London's prestigious Roundhouse - check out his website for further details.
