Manic Street Preachers announce remix album

Each track on Manic Street Preachers’ new album, “Journal For Plague Lovers”, is to be remixed for future release.

Following on from the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Mogwai, Stereolab, David Holmes, The Avalanches, Cornelius and Massive Attack, the Manics have given free rein to a diverse, hand-picked selection of studio hands.

Andrew Weatherall ‘Peeled Apples’
Saint Etienne ‘Jackie Collins Existential Question Time’
British Sea Power ‘Me And Stephen Hawking’
Patrick Wolf ‘This Joke Sport Severed’
