Listen to Public Service Broadcasting’s gorgeous, atmospheric remix of Manic Street Preachers’ ‘Hold Me Like A Heaven’

The Welsh trio’s new album ‘Resistance Is Futile’ came out last month.

Manic Street Preachers released their new album ‘Resistance Is Futile’ last month, and have now shared a new remix of its latest single ‘Hold Me Like A Heaven’ by instrumentalists Public Service Broadcasting, which is playing first today on DIY.

A slow, deeply atmospheric rework of the track, J. Willgoose and co have transformed the track into a glacial slow-burner, which shows off James Dean Bradfield’s vocals even more than usual.

It’s not the first time the pair have linked up - the Manics frontman appeared on ‘Turn No More’, from Public Service Broadcasting’s 2017 LP ‘Every Valley’.

Manic Street Preachers are set to support Guns’N’Roses on a handful of European stadium dates this summer. They’ll also play the Robert Smith-curated Meltdown Festival at London’s Southbank Centre next month.
