Suede have confirmed they are writing new material - but also that they may never release it.

Speaking to Rolling Stone Indonesia, singer Brett Anderson said that though the band were working on new songs they won't release them unless they are "outstanding".

"I wouldn't want to make another record that I look back on and regretted again," he said. "Whether anyone else hears what we've been writing recently isn't set in stone. Unless it turns out to be outstanding, then no-one will ever hear it."

Anderson also said that the decision over whether to release new material would decide the band's future.

Asked about playing with Suede beyond the summer, he said: "It depends on what happens with writing. I don't know how long you can go tour with playing songs from the past."

Suede are confirmed to headline this summer's Latitude Festival and are also scheduled to play three shows at London's O2 Academy Brixton on May 19, 20 and 21.
