Suede announce album number eight

By | Published on Monday 30 April 2018


Suede have announced that they will release their eighth studio album, ‘The Blue Hour’, in September. The record is the follow-up to their 2016 LP, ‘Night Thoughts’, and their third since reforming in 2010.

The band say in a statement: “The ‘blue hour’ is the time of day when the light is fading and night is closing in. The songs hint at a narrative but never quite reveal it and never quite explain. But as with any Suede album, it’s always about the songwriting. The band, the passion and the noise: ‘The Blue Hour'”.

Orchestral backing on the album comes from the City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, with string arrangements by the band’s Neil Codling and composer Craig Armstrong.

‘The Blue Hour’ is set for release on 21 Sep. Pre-ordering from the band’s website will give pre-sale access to upcoming tour dates.
