Track Of The Day: Manic Street Preachers - 'Show Me The Wonder'

Only a week left until the new album 'Rewind The Film' is released, and today sees the appearance of the lovely new single 'Show Me The Wonder', released as a 3 track digital download and two 7" singles, which include exclusive B sides. The video features the band performing live in an old-fashioned pub boasting a South Wales National Union of Miners wall hanging, and also stars Skins actor Craig Roberts. 

I was lucky enough to be sent a copy of the album, and ended up publishing only the second ever review. Better still the band shared my article on their Facebook and Twitter pages, with Nicky Wire himself calling it "great". Read that review HERE... "With its playful melody, joyous chorus and brightly rousing brass, the magnificent single ‘Show Me The Wonder’ looks at the polarised concepts of religion and science in a refreshingly positive way, an addictive moment that shares musical DNA with the Chris Farlowe classic ‘Out Of Time’, itself covered masterfully by the Manics about a decade ago...."

Below the video for the single you can listen to a Spotify stream of the new B side 'Melancholyme', which echoes the acoustic style of the new LP...
