Suede are set to return with the announcement of Autofiction, their ninth studio album, due for release on 16th September 2022 via BMG and available to pre-order here.

Yesterday, Suede debuted the brand new single She Still Leads Me On live on stage at a headline performance in Belgium at Brussels’ Cirque Royal. Following a premiere on Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6Music show this afternoon, the new single is available to listen to here.

Speaking about Autofiction, Brett Anderson says: “Autofiction is our punk record. No whistles and bells. Just the five of us in a room with all the glitches and fuck-ups revealed; the band themselves exposed in all their primal mess.”

Autofiction was recorded live at Konk studios in North London with long-time Suede collaborator, Ed Buller. Buller first worked with the band producing their debut single The Drowners, which sees its 30th anniversary this month.

“When we were rehearsing and writing this record it was this sheer, physical rush. That thing where you’re hanging on for dear life,” adds bass player Mat Osman.

Following the release of Autofiction, October 2022 will see two intimate shows at London’s Electric Ballroom, with more live activity soon to be announced.

Electric Ballroom tickets are on sale from 27th May at with a fan presale beginning 26th May.
