The former Smiths guitarist has featured the track as a b-side on his Record Store Day release.
Johnny Marr is currently streaming a live recording of himself singing the classic Smiths' track Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want. The song is the b-side to his Record Store Day release, a cover of Depeche Mode's I Feel You.
You can listen to Marr's live recording of the classic track below.
Speaking to Radio X, Marr explained that the Depeche Mode cover came about by fluke - when his bandmates heard him strumming it backstage. "I was playing on my guitar backstage, in the dressing room. And the band kind of joined in!
"[The song] kind of sounded like it suited my band really. I'm guessing we got some of it wrong, in doing it our own way. But that's a good thing I think, when you tackle someone else's song...You have to respect it in the first place to like it."
