Manic Street Preachers announce new album, single and UK tour – listen

The band's 11th album 'Rewind The Film' will be released on September 16

Manic Street Preachers have announced details of a new album, single and tour.

The band will release their 11th studio album, ‘Rewind The Film’ on September 16. Recorded in the band’s own studio in Cardiff, Rockfield in Monmouthshire and Hansa in Berlin, it features guest appearances from Lucy Rose (on ‘This Sullen Welsh Heart’) Cate Le Bon (on ‘4 Lonely Roads’) and Richard Hawley on the title track. “[If] this record has a relation in the Manics back catalogue, it’s probably the sedate coming of age that was ‘This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours’,” the band say in a statement.

Watch the video to the album’s title track, which features Richard Hawley, above now. “I am so chuffed to have been asked to sing with the mighty Manics,” Hawley said. “Can’t tell you what it means to me. The whole experience is something I’ll treasure forever – I love the Manics and what they stand for and to be a tiny part of that means the world to me.”

The album, which is the follow-up to 2010’s ‘Postcards From A Young Man’ will be preceded by the single ‘Show Me The Wonder’ on September 9. Shortly after the album’s release, the band will tour the UK and Ireland – playing Newport, Dublin, Bristol, London, Manchester and Glasgow.
