Suede frontman Brett Anderson has recently revealed that the band have been busy writing new material, and are hard at work in the studio. Vowing to meet expectations, he says unless the songs lived up to their back catalogue, they wouldn’t be released.
Suede contributed to what eventually became the Brit-pop era in the UK’s early nineties, before breaking up, only to eventually reform for shows in 2010. In Suede’s early days, Anderson’s androgynous style and unique vocals were an instant phenomenon.
When Suede returned, Brett Anderson has promised it would only be for a few shows, only to turn into a tour, and evidently momentum pushed the band into the studio.
Speaking to 6Music in the UK, Anderson said:
“We’re writing a new Suede album” he said. “We don’t know how that’s going to turn out. If it’s not amazing, I don’t think we’ll release it. We’re just at the writing stage and it feels pretty good and it’s very exciting.”
Speaking about a release date, he says “I wish I knew. We’re just at the writing stage, we’ve written about seven or eight songs and who knows if any of those will make it onto the final album. We might go somewhere completely different.”
Recently releasing an album under his own name, Brett Anderson is now steering Suede through a live package.
Caught in action at the Royal Albert Hall last year, a film crew were on hand to record the band’s comeback show – an emotional occasion for all concerned,
A limited edition box set of their show at the Royal Albert Hall last year, with a DVD, two audio CDs of the show and a 48 page bound book will be due for release on March 24th.
