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."

Johnny will support The Who at the British Summer Time Hyde Park on 26 June 2015.
