Wire share “The Art of Persistence” from upcoming new album
Wire were originally releasing 10:20 -- a new album featuring rare, unreleased and reworked tracks -- as a Record Store Day exclusive, but it's now going to receive a wide release on June 19 via their own pinkflag label. (June 19 is one day before what was to have been the rescheduled Record Store Day which has now been moved again.) With this news comes a second track from the album, "The Art of Persistence," which had previously been released as a "1st Draft" rehearsal recording on Wire's now out-of-print 2000 The First Day EP. This is a new studio version, and you can watch the song's video, which uses photos from their January performance at Band on The Wall in Manchester, below.
