Three years after Futurology, Welsh band Manic Street Preachers have announced the release of a new album. Resistance Is Futile is out on April 6th via Columbia/Sony. “International Blue” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video that ìwas made 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”. Kieran described it as the start of “another exciting visual collaboration” with the band. “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”.
