We would like to invite you to be part of the new Suede record. Anyone who wants to get involved should submit a voice recording. For now we can say no more than that, but if you are game to proceed with this scant information then read on….…
Please download and listen to the audio guide here:
They will automatically download to your computer when you hit the link.
Please make sure there’s no background noise from radios, TV's or fridges. Please listen to this somewhere quiet on headphones on, say, a stereo or a laptop, and record your voice on a phone, using the Recorder app on Android, or Voice Memos on an iPhone, or something similar.
Make sure the phone isn’t too close to you when you’re recording, otherwise the sound will be distorted and we won’t be able to use it. Please check this before you send anything to us. It’s fine if it’s quiet, as we can always turn you up. You can do a practice recording to check it sounds OK if you have time.
1. Listen to our audio guide (on a stereo, computer or laptop) while wearing headphones
2. Start recording your voice on your phone
3. Playback our recording
4. Listen to the instructions
5. Sing and shout along when we ask you to
6. When you get to the end, stop your voice recording
7. Check your recording is…(a) just your voice, and…(b) not too loud (it would sound distorted)
8. …and if it’s ok and you’re happy with it, send us the result to:
Everything you send in will be gratefully received. If you can do 2 or even 3 recordings, that would be even better. If you have any questions, we’ll try to clarify in the DM’s.
When you return the recording to us please include confirmation that you agree that all rights in your recording are assigned to Suede in perpetuity and you agree that Suede may use the recording in any manner whatsoever in all media exclusively throughout the world in perpetuity. I’m afraid we won’t be able to use your contribution without the confirmation.
Thank you! - SuedeHQ

Suede are inviting fans to be part of their new album
They're accepting voice recordings now

The band are calling on their followers to “submit a voice recording” and have detailed a list of instructions on Facebook which includes singing and shouting “along when we ask you to”.
“Everything you send in will be gratefully received. If you can do 2 or even 3 recordings, that would be even better. If you have any questions, we’ll try to clarify in the DM’s,” the band added.
This is the first time the band have mentioned work getting under way on a new album.
Suede’s latest LP, ‘The Blue Hour’, arrived back in 2018. In a three-star review, NME concluded: “Rest assured, Suede remain the beautiful ones, but are just looking for beauty in ever more curious places.”
Earlier this year, Suede rescheduled their planned anniversary tour for 1996 album ‘Coming Up’ due to the coronavirus pandemic.
They were due to be hit the road in October to celebrate 25 years of their seminal third album, but it was pushed back to April 2021.
Suede’s rescheduled tour dates are as follows:

Tuesday April 13 2021 – Belgium – Cirque Royal, Brussels
Wednesday 14 April 2021 – Germany – Tempodrom, Berlin
Friday 16 April 2021 – Netherlands – Tivoli Vredenburg Ronda, Utrecht
Saturday 17 April 2021 – France – France – La Salle Pleyel, Paris
Monday April 19 2021 – UK – Usher Hall, Edinburgh
Tuesday April 20 2021 – UK – O2 Academy, Leeds
Wednesday April 21 2021 – UK- O2 Academy, Birmingham
Friday April 23 2021 – UK – O2 Victoria Warehouse, Manchester
Saturday April 24 2021 – UK – Alexandra Palace, London
Monday April 26 2021 – UK – Denmark – Falconer, Copenhagen
Tuesday April 27 2021 – UK – Sweden – Annexet, Stockholm

They previously shared a series of past live performances online, including Brett Anderson and co’s 2010 reunion show at London’s Royal Albert Hall, which was held in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.
It marked the band’s first concert in seven years at the time, although they performed an intimate warm-up gig at the 100 Club just days before.
