Manic Street Preachers Share new Video for ‘International Blue’
Video for first single ‘International Blue’ released from upcoming LP 'Resistance is Futile' - tracklist revealed
The band are due to release their first album in four years on 6th April 2018, via Columbia/Sony. 'Resistance is Futile' will be their 13th consecutive studio album. Today they've shared the video for International Blue which is the first release from the upcoming LP.
The filming took place at various locations in Nice at the end of last year with long time collaborator Kieran Evans. The band described the track as being “Inspired by the city of Nice in the mid winter sun and the life’s work of French artist Yves Klein”.
Evans adds “We hit on the idea of creating a mood and atmosphere we termed ‘widescreen melancholia’ which will run through all the films we make for the album”.
The album is available to pre-order here with the full tracklist released today, see details below.
