limited vinyl with full colour picture inner sleeve. manic street preachers' 10th studio album 'postcards from a young man' features guest vocals from ian mcculloch on one track ('some kind of nothingness'), john cale on piano ('auto-intoxication') and duff mckagen playing bass ('a billion balconies facing the sun'). manics bassist nicky wire sings lead vocals on 'the future has been here 4 ever' alongside drummer sean moore on the trumpet. 'postcards from a young man' is the follow up to 2009's 'journal for plague lovers' but is musically very different and more in the vein of 'send away the tigers' and 'everything must go' with unashamed soaring choruses, lots of strings and gospel choirs. it was recorded in cardiff with producer dave eringa and mixed by chris lord alge in the us.
