Manic Street Preachers

Manic Street Preachers have shared a new acoustic version of 'Distant Colours'.

The band released the single recently, a James Dean Bradfield penned song that looks back on the political certainties of his youth.

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

A perfect example of the band's widescreen melancholia, Manic Street Preachers have now re-cast 'Distant Colours' in an acoustic style.

A sparse, tender performance, James Dean Bradfield takes the lead in a monochrome clip, a simple, gently triumphant rendering.

Tune in now.

Manic Street Preachers are set to release new album 'Resistance Is Futile' on April 13th.
