Suede's Brett Anderson has been commenting on recent Bernard Butler collaboration rumours via his band's website. Anderson writes: "I know there has been a lot of speculation and rumour about precisely what I'm up to - so I thought I'd set the record straight. Firstly I can confirm that me and Bernard are working together again. We've written about fifteen songs so far and even though it's early days I can honestly say that I believe the work to be up there with some of the best things we've ever done. We have been rehearsing with a drummer and a bass player who will be part of our new band. I can't tell you what we will be called yet but it will not be Suede or Anderson and Butler. We'll be entering a London studio to start recording in June so I'm hoping that you will hear something early next year."
