Manic Street Preachers release The Ultra Vivid Lament on September 3rd.
Manic Street Preachers have shared their collaboration with Julia Cumming of Sunflower Bean that’s set to feature on their upcoming fourteenth studio album.
Cumming follows in the tradition of past female guest vocalists with the Manics such as Ninas Persson and Hoss, The Secret He Had Missed inspired by sibling artists Augustus and Gwen John and their estranged, divergent lifestyles.
The new single’s video stars Newport-born Aimee Ffion Edwards and was directed by the band’s long-time collaborator Kieran Evans.
