Great news! Loved the last two albums. Hopefully some gigs in the autumn also. Brett's book is great read too. Highly recommended.

Very excited! I loved Night Thoughts. And this continues Suede's tradition of beautiful album covers. I'm gonna have to finally read Brett's book in anticipation.

If it is as good as recent Black Grape, Shed Seven and Noel Gallagher albums then it will be worth buying.

Loving these 90s acts in the late 2010s. :D

I thought Bloodsports was fine, but I couldn't really get into Night Thoughts that much. Still, a new Suede album is always something to look forward to.

I gave the debut single "The Invisibles" a go today and I thought it was gorgeous. While I was listening to it, I kept thinking it was a sort of cousin to Still Life. Need to hear it more though!

Bought a ticket this morning to see Suede in Brighton this April. Very excited! Didn't think I'd ever get the chance to see Suede live, so lucky they announced this tour while I'm studying abroad in London. Anyone else gonna see them on this tour?

Yeah I’m going to see them at Newcastle.I saw them play both nights at the Hammersmith 2 months ago and they were fantastic. I’ve seen them 8or 9 times and they are always superb. The Blue Hour is a great albutas well.

This is a damn good album although it's a bit samey in terms of sound and feel to Night Thoughts. Bloodsports was a bit more upbeat and darkly joyous, whereas Night Thoughts was pretty grandiose and melancholy (and dark). I like The Blue Hour but I hope from here Suede go somewhere new because if they continue down this path for a 4th straight album then it'll start to get tiresome.

I can’t remember where I saw it but I did read an interview with Brett after the Blue Hour was released and he said he sees this as the end of a trilogy following Bloodsports and Night Thoughts. He also stated that they will be trying something different on the next record.

Yeah, I saw that, too. I'm glad because as good as this album is, I wouldn't be pleased if they kept going in this direction.
