Suede: Recording New Album
Luke Turner , September 11th, 2012 02:57
Brett Anderson speaks!
When Suede got back together for their Teenage Cancer Trust gigs in 2010, the reunion felt justified as the band really had a point to prove, and a reputation to rescue. Now, we at the Quietus are not keen on bands hanging around endlessly flogging their back catalogue on the tour circuit (yes that's you there, Pixies) and think that if you're going to get back together, you'd better note that man does not live by making 30-somethings cry at your big hits.
So it's with great interest that we bring you the news that Suede are back in the studio recording a new album. "We've been working on the new Suede album, which has been really exciting," Brett Anderson told Luke Turner last week. "We've been writing for the last year, and recording on and off. We recorded one session in May, and we've got another at Sarm studios for a few weeks this month. It's where they did a load of 80s pop things, like Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Seal, stuff like that. It's Trevor Horn's studio. Is he producing it? Yeah right, though we actually had a meeting with him in the 90s, Saul from Nude wanted him to produce Head Music. But no, Ed Buller is producing it."

How has the recording been going? "I've been loving it," said Anderson. "Any album is brutally hard, and this one has been pretty hard. The first couple of months were us trying to get on the same wavelength, is this working, trying to develop the sound we wanted. A lot of the writing process for me is throwing stuff away, because you're finding out what you want to do. There was a lot of that, and we discarded quite a few songs. Early this year we started hitting on the sort of songs that we were aiming to write, and it's sounding really good now."

And what is that sound? "Without wishing to be facetious, it sounds like Suede," Anderson said. "We're not trying to reinvent the sound of the band, that'd be a disastrous thing to do. I think that's possibly where we went wrong on the last two albums, we didn't know where to go with the sound so we were looking for another direction, with mixed results. With this it's about great songs, it's about great guitar hooks, it's about a very powerful band sound. So it sounds like Suede. I think you'll like it. Don't worry, it doesn't sound anything like the last album [laughs].

"It sounds like a cross between bits of Dog Man Star and bits of Coming Up. It's not as light as Coming Up, not la la la hooky, though there's pop moments. Ed Buller is a real fan of pop music that really connects, the [Marc] Bolan sound, so it's edging in the big pop chorus direction. It feels like it's going to be good."

Suede recording new album
Brett Anderson promises the band's first LP in a decade won't 'sound anything like the last album'

Suede are making a new album. Ten years after their disappointing last record, A New Morning, the reunited English band have been working on new songs. "Don't worry," Brett Anderson said, "it doesn't sound anything like the last album."
Anderson revealed Suede's plans in an interview with the Quietus. It is more than a year since the singer first started talking about the possibility of a sixth Suede LP. "Nothing would see the light of day unless I was really, really excited about it," he told Xfm at the time. The 44-year-old now seems confident that that is the case. "It feels like it's going to be good," he explained. "It's about great songs, it's about great guitar hooks, it's about a very powerful band sound. So it sounds like Suede."
Suede have apparently been writing and recording "on and off" for the past year. "The first couple of months were us trying to get on the same wavelength: 'Is this working?' Trying to develop the sound we wanted," he said. "Early this year we started hitting on the sort of songs that we were aiming to write, and it's sounding really good now."
The band is spending "a few weeks" this month at Trevor Horn's Sarm studios, working with Ed Buller, who produced their first three albums. "Ed Buller is a real fan of pop music that really connects, the [Marc] Bolan sound, so it's edging in the big pop chorus direction," Anderson said. "We're not trying to reinvent the sound of the band, that'd be a disastrous thing to do. I think that's possibly where we went wrong on the last two albums: we didn't know where to go with the sound so we were looking for another direction, with mixed results."
A New Morning barely cracked the UK top 25 in 2002: most of Suede's previous albums had reached No 1. The London band broke up shortly thereafter. They re-formed in 2010 and have since undertaken several major tours.
