Returnees of the moment (we jest), Suede have unveiled a video for their comeback track ‘Barriers’ - watch it above. The song was released online yesterday and is the first cut from their forthcoming new album.
The band’s new studio album, ‘Bloodsports’ will be released in March 2013 preceded by the single ‘It Starts And Ends With You’ in February. There’s no news of the tracklisting just yet, but more information - along with details of a deluxe direct-to-fan edition - will be revealed shortly.
Speaking of their new material, frontman Brett Anderson (via NME) commented: ‘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 it’s pulsing, romantic swell somehow summed up the feel of the album quite nicely.
‘The album is called ‘Bloodsports’. It’s about lust, it’s about the chase, it’s about the endless carnal game of love. It was possibly the hardest we’ve ever made but certainly the most satisfying. It’s ten furious songs for me have reclaimed from ourselves what Suede was always about; drama, melody and noise.’
