:: Fabulous song with a beautiful official video that gives food for thought.
Manic Street Preachers are back with a new LP. It’s already the eleventh studio recording of the Blackwood (Wales, UK) band comprised of James Dean Bradfield [vocals/guitar], Nicky Wire [bass] and Sean Moore [drums]. The record entitled Rewind The Film is officially released in the UK and Europe today (September 16, 2013) via Columbia Records. US release follows on September 24. Order your digital copy via iTunes or buy the physical record in the band’s Online Store. Back in May, the band had announced the upcoming release, saying that they had enough material from their studio sessions for two new records. The first, Rewind The Film is recorded almost without the use of electric guitars and features guest performances of Richard Hawley, Lucy Rose and Cate Le Bon. The twelve-track set is produced by the Manic Street Preachers together with producer Alex Silva, the songs were recorded in the Manics’ Faster studio in Cardiff, at Rockfield Studios in Monmouthshire and Hansa Studios in Berlin. The second records is entitled Futurology and will drop in 2014, in about six months time.
The title track Rewind The Film featuring Richard Hawley was revealed as first track off the new record. The official video is directed by Kieran Evans and produced by myAccomplice. The contemplative seven-minute clip was filmed in South Wales and follows an elderly man making his way through a little village to their bingo night and stays with the village folks for this night. Watch it above. Check out below the official video for the records’s lead single Show Me The Wonder, also directed by Kieran Evans. The single was released on September 09 via Columbia and features the b-side T.E. Lawrence On A Bike.
