'Attitude' features on the band's forthcoming singles compilation...
have confirmed final details of their brand new single, ‘ATTITUDE’.
The track is released on double CD and DVD formats on 6 October, and is featured on their forthcoming ‘Singles’ compilation, due two weeks later on October 20. It comes backed across the formats with two brand new tracks, ‘Golden Gun’ and ‘Oxygen’, the demo version of ‘Attitude’, and two out-takes from the Suede
archive, ‘Just A Girl’ and ‘Heroin’.
The DVD features an early version of ‘We’re So Disco’, which emerged as ‘WSD’, an Arthur Baker remix of ‘Head Music’, and the director Lindy Heymann’s cut of the ‘Attitude’ video.
‘Just A Girl’ was written by Brett Anderson before he formedSuede, and was recorded as a duet between Anderson and guitarist Richard Oakes shortly after Oakes joined the band in 1994.
Anderson said of the tracks through a posting on the band’s website earlier this year: “Most of the new material is more aggressive and less song based than ‘A New Morning’. We’ve been spending a lot of time working on tracks that sound nothing like traditional Suede. There’s a kind of electronic reggae thing called ‘Attitude’ and an insane metallic robot march called ‘Golden Gun’. I needed to write something as soulful as ‘A New Morning’ at the time but now that’s out of my system and it’s time to release the beast.”
