Manic Street Preachers on their “expansive” new album and James Dean Bradfield’s “electric” new solo record

Manic Street Preachers have revealed that their new album is heading in an “expansive” direction sonically, while frontman James Dean Bradfield is also releasing a solo album this year.

The band, who yesterday confirmed a deluxe reissue of their 1993 album ‘Gold Against The Soul‘, are currently at work on the follow-up to 2018’s acclaimed ‘Resistance Is Futile’.

Speaking to NME, bassist and lyricist Nicky Wire said that they were aiming for a summer 2021 release for their new record.

“We’ve written one really brilliant Manics song called ‘Orwellian’,” Wire told NME. “We’ve demoed that and it feels like a bit of a signpost to where we’re going. It’s got a bit of an ‘If You Tolerate This’ retro-futurism about it. It’s our shining light at the moment.”

Asked about the sound of their new material, Wire revealed: “It’s very broad – it feels like an expansive record. ‘Resistance Is Futile’ certainly felt more tight and ‘pop’ in a Manics sense. Everything was really melodic and concise. This album just feels broader. It’s got a wider landscape, sonically. It’s early days, but ‘Orwellian’ feels like the one track to guide us. I wouldn’t call it a directly political song, but it has that element of the times that we live in.”

He added: “Lyrically, I’m just working things out. Since losing both my parents, I’ve been kind of overwhelmed at that situation. There’s a deep-rooted sadness and melancholia that overhangs everything.”

The bassist also told us that frontman James Dean Bradfield was full of “electricity” and ideas during early sessions, which pushed him to write a new solo album with Wire’s brother, the celebrated poet Patrick Jones. Bradfield’s debut solo album ‘The Great Western’ was released in 2006. The follow-up is expected this summer.

“I was trying to write words and Sean and I were less engaged. James was bursting as he always is. My brother wrote all the lyrics for James’ album. Every time I came into the studio, he’d had another track done. His guitar is extraordinary on there. It’s like Alex Lifeson from Rush meets Johnny Marr. He put a lot of his electricity into that. I was more than happy for him to go on because I needed to take a bit more time over words really.”

Wire added that he had also been working on a solo album of his own, and was considering releasing the follow-up to 2006’s ‘I Killed The Zeitgeist’ by fan request.

Ja, ist sehr weit noch hin... aber mir ist so eine "realistische" Angabe lieber als "Album nearly done... maybe release in June" nur um dann immer wieder verschoben zu werden.
