After the success of his critically acclaimed debut solo album, 2013’s The Messenger, Marr didn’t waste time putting together a new set of tunes. His sophomore effort, Playland, is due out Oct. 7 in the U.S. on Warner Music Group. Marr once again teamed up with collaborator and co-producer Doviak, on the new LP as well as the other musicians who performed on The Messenger and its accompanying tour.

Last month Marr unveiled the official video for the Playland track “Easy Money.”
