‘Journal For Plague Lovers’ by MANIC STREET PREACHERS.
Released 18 May 2009, 11 years ago. It was the band’s ninth
studio album featuring only posthumously published lyrics
by the late great Richey Edwards, who disappeared without
a trace on 1 February 1995.
The record’s cover art is a reproduction of an original painting
called Stare (2005), by Jenny Saville, who also contributed artwork
for the Manics magnum opus The Holy Bible.
