Suede will release their eighth studio album, The Blue Hour, on September 21st.
The Blue Hour will be available on CD (€12.99), double vinyl LP (€29.99) and vinyl box set (€74.99). The Blue Hour box set contents are a mystery, but we hope it will be announced un full soon.
The Blue Hour is the final part of the triptych of albums recorded by the band since they reformed and released 2013’s Bloodsports. Produced and mixed by Alan Moulder at Assault & Battery Studios the album sees Suede continue to explore new ground sonically. It features a choir and spoken word, as well as string arrangements from Craig Armstrong and the band’s own Neil Codling.
The Blue Hour was produced by Alan Moulder and Suede; it shares the same line-up as 1996’s Coming Up – vocals by Brett Anderson, guitars by Richard Oakes, bass by Mat Osman, drums by Simon Gilbert, synthesizers and piano by Neil Codling.
