The MANIC STREET PREACHERS – ” The Ultra Vivid Lament “

Posted: May 18, 2021 in MUSIC

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”.

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 Ultra Vivid Lament is the 14th studio album from Manic Street Preachers. It is both reflection and reaction – 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.

Musically The Ultra Vivid Lament is inspired by a formative years record box (ABBA, post-Eno Roxy, the Bunnymen, Fables-era REM, Lodger) though the end result could only be the unique union of James Dean Bradfield, Nicky Wire and Sean Moore, collectively one of the UK’s most consistently brilliant rock’n’roll bands for over three decades.

The Ultra Vivid Lament will be released on 3rd September 2021.
