Manic Street Preachers Post Video For New Single Hold Me Like A Heaven

Friday, 04 May 2018 Written by Huw Baines

Manic Street Preachers have released a video for Hold Me Like A Heaven.

It’s the latest single to be unveiled from the Welsh rock legends’ recent LP, ‘Resistance is Futile’. Discussing it, bassist Nicky Wire said:

“This track sprung from reading Lines on a Young Lady’s Photograph Album by Phillip Larkin, and his poem Aubade as well. It was the last lyric written for the record and I knew it had to be special.

"It’s got one of my favourite ever lines, which is “what is the future of the future/when memory fades and gets boarded up”. We’ve long been obsessed with writing something like Ashes to Ashes; I think this is the closest we’ll ever get.”

Manic Street Preachers Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows:

Fri May 04 2018 - LONDON SSE Arena, Wembley
Sat May 05 2018 - CARDIFF Motorpoint Arena Cardiff
Tue June 19 2018 - LONDON Royal Festival Hall

Tue 04 Jun 2019
Photo: Ivana Kličković Cate Le Bon has never been easy to pin down. Having toured and collaborated with a diverse selection of musicians ranging from St. Vincent to Deerhunter, the Welsh musician and producer could loosely be described as trading in sprawling alt-folk, but that would only tell half the story. On her newest record, ‘Reward’, Le Bon creates a unique world indebted to new wave and jazz as much as it is to contemporary pop and folk acts—all with her own idiosyncratic twist.
