Suede frontman Brett Anderson has confirmed the band’s plans to record an album following their recent reunion, but has insisted any new material will only see the light of day if they have full faith in its quality.
“We’re gonna try and write a new Suede album, but if the magic’s not there, no one will hear it, that’s the truth,” Anderson said in an interview with BBC 6Music. “I don’t want us to put a record out just because people want us to, if it’s not right then it’s not right.”
After playing their final scheduled UK date tonight, Suede will kick off an Asian tour later this month, finishing up at Summer Sonic festival in Japan next month (August 14).
With a spot at the Latitude festival tonight (July 17th) set to wrap up their UK dates, Anderson has confirmed a continuation for the band is likely to hinge on the progress of a new record.
“I’d like to think there’s a future for the band,” he continued. “I think realistically unless we make a new album I don’t really see that there’s much future in going round and playing the same set from the 90s year after year.”
Suede’s headline appearance at Latitude tonight follows previous shows this weekend from The National and Paolo Nutini.
