Manic Street Preachers will release their 11th studio album by September 16, titled ‘Rewind The Film’.


Recorded between the band’s studio in Cardiff, and Berlin, the album includes the participation of Lucy Rose (the theme This Sullen Welsh Heart), Cate Le Good (4 Lonely Roads) and Richard Hawley (the title track).

The Welsh band, who is currently on tour in Australia and New Zealand, left on its official website the suggestion that there is new music out soon. Manic Street Preachers have revealed the music video fro the theme which gives the name to the album, a collaboration with Richard Hawley. See it below.

Richard Hawley has spoken about his appearance on the upcoming album from Manic Street Preachers on the title track, ‘Rewind The Film’ on an interview for music website Gigwise, explaining that James Dean Bradfield, lead singer of the band, called him: ‘James just rang me,’ said Hawley. ‘I’ve respected him for a long time. I love that they stand for something and that they’ve stood by it, unlike a lot of bands and politicians….We got chatting, swapped phone numbers and text each other occasionally but he was off having a family and a break while I was away on the road then he just phoned me and said ‘we’ve written this song and all decided that you have to sing it or it won’t go on the album’

The second single, ‘Show Me the Wonder’, will be released shortly before the album came out, but the edition of  ‘Rewind the Film’ is now available for download for those who pre-order the album on iTunes.
