The Football Association of Wales are excited to announce that Manic Street Preachers will release the official Wales EURO 2016 song on 20 May 2016.
‘Together Stronger (C’mon Wales)’ celebrates past and present members of the squad and their appearance in a major football tournament for the first time in over half a century. All profits from the song will go to the Princes Gate Trust (http://princesgatetrust.com) and Tenovus Cancer Care ((http://tenovuscancercare.org.uk).
Wales are playing Northern Ireland (March 24) and Ukraine (March 29) in preparation for the EURO 2016 Finals in France this summer and Manic Street Preachers met up with Wales National Team Manager, Chris Coleman and members of the Wales squad at training to film an accompanying music video.
Tickets for the match between Wales and Northern Ireland at the Cardiff City Stadium on Thursday, March 24 can be purchased here: http://bit.ly/1PGvJQj. The game kicks off at 7:45pm.
Speaking about the collaboration with the Manic Street Preachers, manager Chris Coleman said: “It was fantastic to be involved with such an iconic Welsh band. Manic Street Preachers have been passionate Welsh football supporters and all the lads enjoyed the experience and joined in. It is also great to be supporting such worthwhile causes in the Princes Gate Trust and Tenovus Cancer Care.”
‘Together Stronger (C’mon Wales)’ is being released at the same time as Manic Street Preachers’ 20th Anniversary re-issue of their hugely successful fourth album ‘Everything Must Go’.
