Meanwhile Marr is set to support Pearl Jam at the bands biggest ever London shows next month. The Seattle grunge act will headline BST Hyde Park and will be joined on the bill by the former Smiths guitarist Temples LIFE and more.
In March Marr revealed that he had been working on new music with Modest Mouse – his first collaboration with the band since his stint as part of their lineup between 2006 and 2008.

I played on that new Modest Mouse song and there are a couple of other things knocking around that Isaac [Brock]s writing he said in an interview. As Isaac said air travel isnt quite what it was. But hopefully when the world tilts back on its axis Ill be jumping on a plane I think. Speaking to NME last year Marr said he would like to be reunited with the group one day. Thats not me being coy – I just miss them he explained. Weve just got so much planned for the next couple of years. Weve got the double album touring and then Im going to probably do another film but Id probably have to do a new record with Isaac. Theyre the one band that Id rejoin.
