Manic Street Preachers share Distant Colours lyric video

Manic Street Preachers

Manic Street Preachers have released a lyric video for their new single Distant Colours.

It will feature on the Welsh outfit’s upcoming studio album Resistance Is Futile which will arrive on April 13.

The band previously released a video for Distant Colours which was filmed by Kieran Evans and starred Sarah Sayuri.

The new promo accompanies the previous release and focuses on the Welsh countryside.

A statement on the track reads: “With lyrics by James Dean Bradfield, Distant Colours is about his disenchantment with the left of his youth, where the classic Labour of Nye Bevan has ended up.”

Bradfield adds: “Musically, the verse is downcast and melancholic and the chorus is an explosion of disillusionment and tears.”

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.
