Suede have announced that their eighth studio album, entitled The Blue Hour, will be released on September 21. Watch a trailer below:

Produced and mixed by Alan Moulder, it features the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, with string arrangements by the band’s Neil Codling and film composer Craig Armstrong.


According to the press release, The Blue Hour completes a triptych that began with 2013’s Bloodsports. Like 2016’s Night Thoughts, it was written as a continuous piece, although there are fourteen distinct songs on the record. The record is also complemented by some of the subject matter of Brett Anderson’s recent memoir Coal Black Mornings.

The tracklisting for The Blue Hour is as follows:

As One
Beyond The Outskirts
Chalk Circles
Cold Hands
Life Is Golden
Don’t Be Afraid If Nobody Loves You
Dead Bird
All The Wild Places
The Invisibles

The June 2018 issue of Uncut is now on sale in the UK – with the Rolling Stones on the cover. Elsewhere in the issue, you’ll find exclusive new interviews with Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Françoise Hardy, Eric Burdon, James Taylor, Public Enemy, Eleanor Friedberger and many more.
