MANIC STREET PREACHERS have delayed the release of their new single, ‘OCEAN SPRAY’, by a week.

The single was due to be released on May 28 via Epic. However, the track will now be released on June 4.

The song, the band’s first with lyrics by vocalist James Dean Bradfield, features new songs ‘Groundhog Days’ and ‘Just A Kid’, as well as mixes by Medicine and Kinobe across the formats. The CD single also features CD-ROM footage of ‘Ocean Spray’ live from the group’s recent gig Havana.

A cassette release features ‘Little Trolls’, plus an Ellis Island Sound remix of ‘Ocean Spray’.

Manic Street Preachers return to our TV screens with an appearance on BBC2’s ‘Later With Jools Holland’ this Friday (May 11).

Channel 4’s Manics Night on June 21 will be another chance to see the documentary ‘Our Manics In Havana’.
