Suede have announced that they’ll release their new album The Blue Hour later this year.

The follow-up to to 2016’s Night Thoughts was produced by Alan Moulder and recorded at London’s Assault & Battery Studios. It will arrive on September 21.

To mark the announcement, the band have released a trailer for the record, which can be seen below.

The album will include a choir, spoken word passages and will feature the City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. 

It was written as a continuous piece, with all 14 tracks thematically linked. The band explain: “The Blue Hour is the time of day when the light is fading and night is closing in. 

“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.”

Suede are expected to announce live dates in the near future.
