One of many undisputed highlights of Wilson’s groundbreaking seventh solo album, The Concord Codex, the observe was utterly reimagined by the legendary Welsh rock band at their South Wales studio earlier this 12 months, twisting the unique model’s fragile digital soul into one thing claustrophobic, gothic, and intense.

“After I first heard ‘Economies of Scale’ I discovered myself transported again to 1984,” says Manic Road Preachers’ James Dean Bradfield “…when Sean (Moore, Manic Road Preachers drummer) got here again from Germany the place he’d been on tour with the Celynen Colliery Brass Band. He had a bootleg copy of SYNCHRONICITY by The Police. We couldn’t cease enjoying it, particularly tracks like ‘Strolling in Your Footsteps’ and ‘Homicide by Numbers.’

There was one thing in regards to the bareness of the vocals, the steely percussion, and slight detachment that reminded us of that period of The Police, together with Stewart Copeland’s solo work on the Rumble Fish soundtrack. With these issues in thoughts, we had rapidly discovered a route and collectively related with the observe. As soon as we bought within the studio, [Manic Street Preachers bassist Nicky] Wire instantly sought to push the second half of the observe in additional of a Holy Bible route.”

The Concord Codex is on the market now through Wilson’s personal Spinefarm Information in a variety of codecs together with CD, 2LP, Blu-ray, and digital obtain.
