Suede talk new LP, give away track

Suede

Suede are giving away a brand new track in advance of their just-titled new LP ‘Bloodsports’, which is to be granted a March release.

The band, who’ll promote said LP via a standalone show at London’s Alexandra Palace on 30 Mar, shared ‘Barriers’ as a free MP3 yesterday, attaching this note: “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 of it enough just to chuck it out there and thought that its pulsing, romantic swell somehow summed up the feel of the album quite nicely”.

Adding a paragraph or so about ‘Bloodsports’ at large, Brett Anderson says: “It’s about lust, it’s about the chase, it’s about the endless carnal game of love. It was possibly the hardest [record] we’ve ever made, but certainly the most satisfying. Its ten furious songs, for me, have reclaimed from ourselves what Suede was always about; drama, melody and noise”.
