Johnny Marr

Story by Jack Foley

JOHNNY Marr is releasing a charity single for Centrepoint, the leading national charity working to improve the lives of homeless young people.

The song, Tendency To Be Free, is a 60’s garage rock cult anthem, written and recorded by Rabbit Mackay and released on the album Passing Through in 1969.

The track has cult support and interest, mainly due to its appearance on the soundtrack of biker B-movie classic, Angels Die Hard.

Marr’s version is set to be released on October 4, 2010, and fans will be delighted with the classic Marr guitar sound on the new track.

Tendency To Be Free will also feature on Centrepoint’s new compilation album, 1969: KEY TO CHANGE, also released on October 4, which features some the UK’s best contemporary recording artists performing classic songs from 1969, the year Centrepoint was founded.

Included are The Feeling’s In The Year 2525, Hard-Fi with the Stooges’ track 1969 and Get Cape Wear Cape Fly with a brand new version of David Bowie’s seminal Space Oddity.

The single and album will be available from Fairsharemusic, the UK’s first ethical download site where all of the profits will help Centrepoint to help fight youth homelessness: £4.45 per album download and 44p per track download.
