Suede have given fans new song 'Barriers' as a free download today (Jan 7). The track is the first to be heard from the band's brand new studio album, which will be titled 'Bloodsports'.

'Bloodsports' will be Suede's sixth studio album and their first since 2002. 'Barriers' is the first song to be lifted from the album, due out in March, and is available from their official website now. An official single, titled 'It Starts And Ends With You', is due for release in February.

Speaking about the new Suede material, frontman Brett Anderson told NME: "After a year of sweating and bleeding over the record it's finally finished so we wanted to get some music out there as soon as we could. 'Barriers' isn't the first single but we are proud enough of it to just chuck it out there and thought that its pulsing, romantic swell somehow summed up the feel of the album quite nicely. The album is called 'Bloodsports'. It's about lust, it's about the chase, it's about the endless carnal game of love. It was possibly the hardest we ever made but certainly is the most satisfying. It's ten furious songs have reclaimed for me what Suede was always about: drama, melody and noise."

Suede will also perform a huge London show at Alexandra Palace to coincide with the release of 'Bloodsports' in March. The band will headline the venue on Saturday, March 30. Tickets are available now.
