Meanwhile, during a recent interview with NME, frontman Brett Anderson revealed that Suede have already begun work on a “much more experimental” new album. “I would like to think that our boldest work is ahead,” he explained.
“It’s a really exciting prospect — that the band at this stage of our career doesn’t just agree to run around. I love making new recordings: it makes my heart beat faster, it’s what I get up for in the morning.”
