Suede’s Brett Anderson Prepares Solo Album

Last week, titans of leftfield Britpop Suede played a series of concerts at London’s Brixton Academy that saw them perform three of their album in their entirety. Now, singer Brett Anderson has confirmed he has a new album on the way.

NME reports that Anderson’s fourth album, Black Rainbows, will be released in the UK on September 26. The record was recorded in January, and will be preceded by a single, Brittle Heart, out on August 15.

Anderson has described the new work as “restless, noisy and dynamic. Electric guitars, bass, drums and vocals. There are no flute players, no strings, no gimmicks, just passion.”

Anderson’s previous solo album was 2009’s Slow Attack. His debut solo album came in 2007 with his self-titled effort.

He will remain busy with Suede for the next few months as they play festivals over the European summer. Anderson has also announced solo live dates for London in October.

Suede wowed fans last week with full renditions of their first, eponymous album (1993), Dog Man Star (1994) and Coming Up (1996), performed over three consecutive nights at the massive south London venue. The band now head to Ireland for three shows there.

Suede will also release remastered and expanded reissues of their five studio albums this June.
