Suede’s Brett Anderson announces new album and live dates

Singer's fourth solo LP 'Black Rainbows' out in September

Suede frontman Brett Anderson is to release a new solo album, ‘Black Rainbows’, on September 26.

The singer, who has recently been playing live again with Suede and will do again this summer, recorded the album in January and will release a single from it, ‘Brittle Heart’, on August 15.

According to Anderson the album is “restless, noisy and dynamic. Electric guitars, bass, drums and vocals. There are no flute players, no strings, no gimmicks, just passion.” His most recent solo album ‘Slow Attack’ was released in 2009.

The singer will spend the rest of the summer playing live with Suede at various festivals, including a headline slot at Latitude Festival.

He has also announced two solo live dates for October. He’ll play Manchester‘s Club Academy on October 11 and London Koko on October 12.

Tickets go on sale on Friday (May 20) at 9am (BST). To check the availability of Brett Anderson tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
