On June 1, 2010 the Manic Street Preachers announced on their website that a new album called Postcards From a Young Man would be released on September 20, 2010.
Frontman James Dean Bradfield has previously said that the album would be an unashamedly pop-orientated affair following 2009’s Journal For Plague Lovers.
“We’re going for big radio hits on this one,” he told NME. “It isn’t a follow-up to Journal For Plague Lovers. It’s one last shot at mass communication.”
(It’s Not War) Just The End Of Love is the first single and it has that sound that makes you think that it wouldn’t go amiss on James Dean Bradfield’s solo album The Great Western.
The single will be available to purchase on September 13th, and they are on tour across the UK just after (which I am extremely excited about).
