Manic Street Preachers Share New Lyric Video For ‘Distant Colours’ 

“You don’t have to gaze into a crystal ball when you can read an open book”
Nyron Bevan

Taken from their forthcoming 13th studio album ‘Resistance Is Futile’, ‘DISTANT COLOURS’ is the second single taken from the album, being released on 13th April. Buy the single here

The first track from the new album ‘International Blue’ came out in December and was quickly added to the A-lists at Radio 2, 6 Music, Virgin, Absolute and Radio X.  The band have also been announced on the line up for the BBC Biggest Weekend on 25th May at the Titanic Slipways in Belfast as well as slots at several UK festivals.

With lyrics by James Dean Bradfield, Distant Colours is about his disenchantment with the left of his youth; where the classic Labour of Nye Bevan has ended up.  “Musically, the verse is downcast and melancholic and the chorus is an explosion of disillusionment and tears.”

Of their first new album since 2014’s ‘Futurology’, the band said: “The main themes of ‘Resistance is Futile’ are memory and loss; forgotten history; confused reality and art as a hiding place and inspiration.”
