Britain's favorite band to have an opinion on,Manic Street Preachers, are releasing their latest album (out now in the UK) in the U.S. through Red Ink on July 24. The new album, Send Away the Tigers, is the band's first set of new material in three years.
The first single off the new album, "Your Love Alone Is Not Enough," features Swedish chanteuse Nina Persson of The Cardigans dueting with singer Nicky Wire. Fans can preview the new material in the form of 60-second clips on the band's MySpace page. The songs pack a poppy punch, reminiscent of their older material when the band featured their mysteriously missing and presumed dead, fan-favorite guitarist Richie Edwards.
