One of my favourite bands, Manic Street Preachers, return with "Rewind The Film", their eleventh studio album, the first since 2010's "Postcards From A Young Man".
"Rewind The Film" was recorded in the band's Cardiff studio, Rockfield in Monmouthshire and Hansa in Berlin; it's set to be released on September 15 on Columbia Records, with the single "Show Me The Wonder" coming out the week before.
The band said in a statement: "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"."
As a teaser for the new release, the Manics have just debuted a video for the title track: the acoustic-led song feature Sheffield artist and former Pulp player Richard Hawley, who commented "I am so chuffed to have been asked to sing with the mighty Manics, 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."
