Suede to Write New Album

Brett Anderson to Release New Solo Album

Since reforming in 2010, the party line from Suede, including in our video interview with them at Coachella, was that they’d only release a new album if it felt right. The record racks are littered with unnecessary reunion albums that barely touch on a band’s former glory, so Suede have been wise in following Pixies’ model in being cautious about recording and releasing new material. After all, even frontman Brett Anderson admits that the Britpop legend’s final album, 2002’s A New Morning, wasn’t up to the band’s previous standard.

Well now in a new interview with London’s XFM radio station, Anderson (who is also releasing a new solo album in the U.K. next month), said that he will soon be writing a new Suede album. “After I’ve promoted this solo album I’m intent to be writing a new Suede album,” he told the station today.

“I think it’s all about keeping yourself interested as a musician,” explained the singer, “once it gets to this stage in your career it’s very much about doing things that keep you excited and making a new Suede record will be exciting and then making another solo record after this will be exciting. It’s just about trying to keep yourself interested the whole time.”

Anderson added, “I think not getting stuck in a rut is the real lesson I learnt from being in Suede all that time. That’s kind of why we called it a day in 2003-things can become too familiar and I definitely don’t want that to happen again.”

Anderson’s new solo album is entitled Black Rainbows and is due out in the U.K. on September 26 (there’s no word on U.S. release plans, if there are any). The first single, “Brittle Heart,” is available for download in the U.K. today. Unlike his recent more stripped down solo albums, this one will sound more like a rock band. Black Rainbows was the result of three-day session this past January between Anderson, drummer Seb Rochford, producer/musician Leopold Ross, and producer Leo Abrahams. According to XFM, Anderson has described Black Rainbows as “restless, noisy, and dynamic. Electric guitars, bass, drums, and vocals-no flute players, no strings, no gimmicks, just passion.”

Who knows what the next Suede album will sound like, but here’s hoping they can recapture either the energy and ambition of their first two albums (1993’s Suede and 1994’s Dog Man Star) or the pure pop appeal of their third album (1996’s Coming Up). Lord knows they impressed almost everyone who saw them at Coachella and if you happen to be in Berlin, Germany on September 9 (at the Berlin Festival) or in Athens, Greece (at Entertainment Stage) on September 11, then you catch them live there. And then Anderson has two U.K. solo dates, October 11 at Club Academy in Manchester and October 12 at Koko in London.
