"Kevin Carter"

"Kevin Carter" is a song by Manic Street Preachers, released as the third single from their album Everything Must Go in 1996. Its subject was the 1994 Pulitzer Prize winning photographer, Kevin Carter. The CD included "Horses Under Starlight", "Sepia" and "First Republic", while the cassette included an acoustic version of "Everything Must Go".

The song reached number nine in the UK Singles Chart on 12 October 1996, giving them a third straight top-ten hit. The single discography printed in back of the 1998 book "Everything - A book about Manic Street Preachers" incorrectly lists its UK chart position of number 7. The song's lyrics were written solely by missing member Richey Edwards.

The B-side, "Sepia", is a reference to the final scene of the film, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, where the two main characters are shown in freeze frame, which then is colourised to sepia tone. This single was replaced by a single release of the track "Further Away" in Japan.
