Manic Street Preachers release video for acoustic take on Dylan & Caitlin


Manic Street Preachers have released a video showcasing their acoustic take on their track Dylan & Caitlin.

The original version will appear on the Welsh outfit’s upcoming album Resistance Is Futile, which will be released on April 13.

The song features guest vocals from Catherine Anne Davies, aka The Anchoress, with James Dean Bradfield explaining that the track is a “conversation between Dylan and Caitlin Thomas at the apex of their alcohol soaked relationship.”

Bassist Nicky Wire adds: “The story itself rolls through their relationship – drinking, fighting and ended up broken by America.

“The conversational nature of the lyrics lent themselves to a duet so we asked Catherine to provide the female perspective. She’s a hugely talented kindred spirit.”

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.
