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.”

    I hope Brett and Bernard have all the success Suede had. As a younger generation have well taken over the music scene it’s not going to be easy for them to commercially succeed.
    My fifteen-year-old son and his band played a Suede track recently and with most of the audience never having heard of Suede, passed it off as one of his own and got a manic responce after it. To me that proved Brett and Bernard still have the talent despite the commercially failed last two albums.
    Brett hasn’t ‘got his demon back’ in Bernard. I’m trying not to think it’s a case of Suede is dead – the Butler did it!

    Perhaps Brett and Bernard should take a back seat and try producing or management. I agree that Brett in particular has great talent in writing but let’s face it – he’s no spring chicken. Unless his new band really have something different to offer I suggest he takes a different role and helps some new faces take centre stage while he mans the controls.
