They're lifted from a forthcoming solo LP

James Dean Bradfield, frontman and guitarist of Manic Street Preachers, has shared two new singles from a forthcoming solo LP.

The new album is inspired by the life and death of Chilean musician, teacher and political activist Victor Jara, who was tortured and killed during the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet.

It features lyrics written by Welsh poet and playwright Patrick Jones, the brother of Bradfield's Manics bandmate Nicky Wire, and was produced by the frontman himself.

'There'll Come A War' is a foreboding and pensive track, while 'Seeking The Room With The Three Windows' offers a fiery and driving instrumental. You can see a lyric video for the former above, where you can also hear both on Spotify.
