Suede Bloodsports on LP
First New Album in Over 10 Years!
Bloodsports is the new studio album from British alternative band Suede and sixth full-length overall. The 10-song set is the band's first album since 2002′s A New Morning and first since reforming in 2010. The band has already released a free download of album track "Barriers," while the record's first single will be "It Starts and Ends with You."
"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." - Brett Anderson
Anderson also tells Uncut, "We were trying to find that sweet spot between feeling like Suede and feeling fresh, which is a really interesting point on the spectrum. I don’t think there’s any point in coming back and trying to reinvent the band, and I wanted it to sound identifiably like a Suede record. But I didn’t want it to sound like self-parody or pastiche."
