Suede are inviting fans to be part of their new record.
The band are calling on their followers to “submit a voice recording” and have detailed a list of instructions on Facebook which includes singing and shouting “along when we ask you to”.
“Everything you send in will be gratefully received. If you can do 2 or even 3 recordings, that would be even better. If you have any questions, we’ll try to clarify in the DM’s,” the band added.
This is the first time the band have mentioned work getting under way on a new album.
Suede’s latest LP, ‘The Blue Hour’, arrived back in 2018. In a three-star review, NME concluded: “Rest assured, Suede remain the beautiful ones, but are just looking for beauty in ever more curious places.”
