The band's first album in 11 years will be released on March 18
Suede have revealed the tracklisting to their new album ‘Bloodsports’.
Last week, the band unveiled ‘Barriers’, the first song to be lifted from the album, which is due out in March 18. You can listen to the track on Suede’s official website now. The first single from ‘Bloodsports’, 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.”
He added: “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. Its 10 furious songs have reclaimed for me what Suede was always about: drama, melody and noise.”
The tracklisting to ‘Bloodsports’ is as follows:
‘It Starts And Ends With You’
‘For The Strangers’
‘Sometimes I Feel I’ll Float Away’
‘What Are You Not Telling Me?’
Suede will play a huge London show at Alexandra Palace to coincide with the release of ‘Bloodsports’ on March 30. To check the availability of Suede tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
