THE THE: New Single, ‘We Can’t Stop What’s Coming’ – The Inertia Variations

“I have been waiting for tomorrow (all of my life)”, Matt Johnson (THE THE)

After a decade of absence from the music scene (not including film scores), Matt Johnson (THE THE) returns with a new single: ‘We Can’t Stop What’s Coming’.  And guitarist Johnny Marr — formerly with The Smiths and THE THE —  is back working with Matt.

The song, dedicated to Matt’s brother, Andrew, (an accomplished artist, illustrator on THE THE’s albums) who passed away in 2016, is from a new documentary ‘The Inertia Variations’, Inspired by the poem by John Tottenham, with the theme revolving around performance anxiety and fear of both success and failure.
