             The The (http://www.thethe.com/) today released a music video for the band’s comeback single “We Can’t Stop What’s Coming,” an emotional clip that, like the song, pays tribute to bandleader Matt Johnson’s (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_Johnson_(singer)) late brother Andrew Johnson, aka Andy Dog, who designed much of The The’s artwork.
The video, taken from the upcoming documentary about The The called “The Inertia Variations,” (http://www.thethe.com/news/the-inertia-variations-the-documentary/) mixes filmed scenes, an in-studio performance of the song, vintage The The clips and old home-movie footage of Matt Johnson and his brother, who died in January 2016 (https://twitter.com/thethe/status/689734158839582721?lang=en).
The new single — The The’s first since the download-only “Mrs. Mac” (https://www.discogs.com/The-The-Mrs-Mac/release/996119) in 2007 — finds Johnson backed by several former bandmates, including  Zeke Manyika on percussion and James Eller on bass — plus Smiths guitar legend Johnny Marr (http://www.johnny-marr.com/), who played on Mind Bomb and Dusk.
It was released on 7-inch for Record Store Day in the U.K. (http://www.slicingupeyeballs.com/2017/03/21/new-the-the-single-record-store-day/), and when Johnson tried to sell extra copies online (http://www.slicingupeyeballs.com/2017/04/28/the-the-we-cant-stop-whats-coming-buy-online/), his site was overwhelmed by fans. After that, he promised to release the single digitally and on CD (http://www.slicingupeyeballs.com/2017/04/30/the-the-we-cant-stop-whats-coming-cd-digital/). It’s not clear what those plans will entail, but the song is available now via Amazon in the U.K. (http://amzn.to/2q0IjSA)
