BACK TO THE FUTURE!
Former SUEDE bandmates BRETT ANDERSON and BERNARD BUTLER have written 15 songs together, and say that the material is "up there with some of the best things we've ever done".


In a posting on Suede’s official website, Anderson reveals that they have a drummer and bassist, and that fans may not have to wait long for new material.


"I know there has been a lot of speculation and rumour about precisely what I'm up to," Anderson wrote, "So I thought I'd set the record straight.


"Firstly I can confirm that me and Bernard are working together again. We've written about 15 songs so far and even though it's early days I can honestly say that I believe the work to be up there with some of the best things we've ever done.


"We have been rehearsing with a drummer and a bass player who will be part of our new band. I can't tell you what we will be called yet but it will not be Suede or Anderson and Butler. We'll be entering a London studio to start recording in June so I'm hoping that you will hear something early next year."


Anderson also revealed he has collaborated with Fred Ball from Norwegian band Pleasure, who released 2003’s ‘Don't Look The Other Way’ LP.


"Also I've been working on a solo album with a guy called Fred Ball.", he continued. "Some of you might have heard his Pleasure album from last year. The material is more programmed than the Bernard stuff but still song based."


"The writing of this album is close to being finished too but I have a less clear plan as to when it might be released."


As previously reported on NME.COM Anderson played his first solo gig at the Rock 'N' Royal event in Copenhagen on May 7.
