Manic Street Preachers - "Walk Me to the Bridge" from 'Futurology' (video)

by PopMatters Staff

28 April 2014

Manic Street Preachers return with their latest album, Futurology, this July 7th.
 

In the meantime, they have just released the first video from their 12th album, the Run Lola Run-inspired “Walk Me to the Bridge” directed by Kieran Evans.
  
Nicky Wire previously told The Quietus that the song is “about the Øresund Bridge that joins Sweden and Denmark. A long time ago when we were crossing that bridge I was flagging and thinking about leaving the band (the ‘fatal friend’). It’s about the idea of bridges allowing you an out of body experience as you leave and arrive in different places.”
