Manic Street Preachers / The Ultra Vivid Lament

New album due in September

The Manic Street Preachers will release a new album called The Ultra Vivid Lament, in the autumn.

Their 14th studio long-player is described as “a record that gazes in isolation across a cluttered room, fogged by often painful memories, to focus on an open window framing a gleaming vista of land melting into sea and endless sky”.

‘Orwellian’ by Manic Street Preachers

You can preview what the actual music is like by listening to Orwellian, above.

The band are offering signed product from their store, although there’s an indies-only black vinyl LP that comes with an exclusive seven-inch of Orwellian, with a remix on the B-side that isn’t available on the Manics site. The SDE shop has a limited quantity. Amazon also have an exclusive yellow vinyl edition.

The 2CD deluxe bookset looks consistent with previous offerings and comes with a bonus disc of demos. There’s also a picture disc and a cassette.

The Ultra Vivid Lament will be released on 10 September 2021 (was 3 September).
