Brett Anderson has confirmed that Suede will write and record a new album in the coming months.

The singer, who is currently promoting his new solo album ‘Black Rainbows’, has said he will return to the studio with Suede as soon as he is finished with his promotional duties.

Speaking to XFM, Anderson said of his plans to return to the studio: “After I’ve promoted this solo album I intend to be writing a new Suede album.”

The band had previously indicated they would not continue unless they entered the studio to make a new album and Anderson indicated that he believed the band would continue as long as they could “keep themselves interested”.

He said: “I think it’s all about keeping yourself interested as a musician, 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.”

He continued: “It’s just about trying to keep yourself interested the whole time. 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.”

‘Black Rainbows’ is released on September 26.
