Wire Share Reworked Rarity "The Art of Persistence"
Published May 05, 2020Post-punk legends Wire had been set to return with 10:20, a new compilation of previously unreleased, rare and reworked material for Record Store Day. Since that celebration has been moved around due to COVID-19, they've decided to release it on their own via the band's own pinkflag label. Ahead of the album's arrival, Wire have given us another taste.
The song "The Art of Persistence" had previously been shared in demo form on the band's The First Day EP in 2000. Today, they've dropped a new studio recording of the track.
You can watch a music video (more of a slideshow, really) for "The Art of Persistence" below. Then, keep an eye out for 10:20 to arrive on June 19.
