WATCH: Manic Street Preachers – ‘Walk Me To The Bridge’

MANIC STREET PREACHERS have today unveiled the video for their new single Walk Me To The Bridge. The first slice from forthcoming album ‘Futurology’ sees the Welsh pioneers return to a more upbeat style compared to last Autumn’s acoustic offering ‘Rewind The Film’.

The European sounding single is accompanied by a striking video directed by Kieran Evans who has worked with the band on previous singles Rewind The Film, Show Me The Wonder and Anthem For A Lost Cause. The video sees a young German woman racing against the clock trying to locate a package whilst the band perform in an abandoned WWII Aircraft Hanger.

Boasting a more electro-feel, previously experimented with on Lifeblood, the song combines the sonic chorus that they are famed for along with a glorious sounding solo from James Dean Bradfield that could lmost be mistaken for a Bruce Springsteen-esque saxophone.

Walk Me To The Bridge will be released as a single on 29th June ahead of the album ‘Futurology’ released 7th July.
