Manic Street Preachers have launched a video for their new single Distant Colours.
It’s been taken from the band’s upcoming album Resistance Is Futile, which will now launch on April 13 after it was pushed back from its original date of April 6. The Manics previously revealed International Blue from the record, along with an acoustic version.
The Kieran Evans-directed video was filmed in Wales and sees the central character – played by Sarah Sayuri – visit key historical and cultural sites across the country.
Of their first new album since 2014’s Futurology, the band revealed that the main themes of Resistance Is Futile are “memory and loss, forgotten history, confused reality and art as a hiding place and inspiration.”
Resistance Is Futile is available to pre-order now. Find the cover art and tracklist below, along with a list of the band’s upcoming UK tour dates.
