SUEDE – ” The Blue Hour “

Suede will release a new album, The Blue Hour, in September. In a mysterious statement about the album, the British alt-rock band noted that the title references “the time of day when the light is fading and night is closing in.” They also teased the record as “progressive” and “expansive,” adding, “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.'”

Their eighth studio album has been produced and mixed by Alan Moulder and is described as “the final part of a triptych of albums recorded by the band since they reformed and released 2013’s Bloodsports“. It will feature a choir, ‘spoken word’ and string arrangements by Craig Armstrong and Neil Codling.

Format-wise, there will be a CD edition (no deluxe), a double vinyl set and a box set. The contents of the latter will be “announced in full at a later date”, so basically they are still working it out. If I were to hazard a guess… I’d expect double vinyl and CD within some kind of book, perhaps with a bonus CD or vinyl offering exclusive audio and maybe some other ‘bits’ (postcards, poster) thrown in.

The Blue Hour will be released on 21st September 2018.

In addition to the options below, HMV have an exclusive BLUE vinyl and the box set listed for £49.99
