Suede: Night Thoughts review – a florid, cinematic concept album
Guardian (UK) - about 1 year
(Warner Music) Related: Suede's Brett Anderson: ‘There's a balance between sounding like yourself and not being a self-parody' “Do I want you because you’re out of reach?” Brett Anderson muses on Like Kids, halfway through Suede’s ambitious seventh album. He could be addressing the other partner in a floundering relationship, or something nameless floating at the fringes of his consciousness. Yearning and anxiety hover over the record – a concept album that begins with a suicide and plays out as the drowning man’s life flashes before his eyes. Night Thoughts is literally cinematic – it was written to accompany a film – but is also a standalone art-rock piece that adds another dimension to Suede’s universe. When You Are Young, the string-filled opener, is heavy with nostalgia and alienation, with Anderson offering one of the most florid performances of his life. The songs are sequenced without pauses, but the reward for listening all the way through is classic Suede pop moments such ...

A-Sides with Jon Chattman: X Ambassadors Rank, and Ha Ha Tonka's Valuable <em>Lessons</em>
Huffington Post - about 3 years
R.I.P. Andrew Youssef. R.I.P. Paul Walker. I've said it before and I'll say it again, and after I'm done saying it again, I'll probably say it again later: rock n' roll is far from dead. Sure, it's easier to find a hamburger at a vegan bun convention than to hear a rock song on terrestrial radio (sorry Imagine Dragons isn't enough), but if you look for it (or listen for it) you'll find that the genre is well and good. I've already given props to bands like Mona, Diamond Youth, XNY, and Blondfire, and today A-Sides - and by that I mean this guy (points to self) - really wants to get two other bands on your proverbial radar. Maybe they're already there. Indie rockers X Ambassadors are having the kind of year that pimply kids in high school bands could only dream about. After getting discovered by Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons, who introduced them to Alex Da Kid who then signed them to his label KIDinaKORNER, the Brooklyn band's been touring with the likes of Jimmy Eat World, The ...

    Black Rainbows – Anderson's fourth solo album was released through BA Songs, distributed by EMI Music Service in September 2011.
    More Details Hide Details It was preceded by the single "Brittle Heart". It was the second album Anderson had co-written with Leo Abrahams and it saw a return to a simpler more commercial rock format. Anderson stated that he had taken as reference points some of his old favourite records like PIL's "Rise", and Siouxsie and the Banshees' Juju while conceiving the songs. In the early days of Suede's career, Anderson made a comment that he was "a bisexual man who never had a homosexual experience." Anderson is married to Jodie, a naturopath, with whom he has two children. They currently reside in Notting Hill, London, Hertfordshire and have a home in Devon.
  • 2008
    Age 40
    In May 2008 it was announced that Anderson's second album was to be premiered on 7 July in a special concert at London's Mermaid Theatre.

The album was recorded in only seven days, with most tracks recorded as live takes. He plays the piano and the acoustic guitars, and is accompanied by Amy Langley on cello. One of the songs "Back to You" written with Fred Ball of the Norwegian band Pleasure is a duet with French actress Emmanuelle Seigner. Anderson's third album, Slow Attack was co-written with Leo Abrahams. On his website, Brett Anderson writes that he tried to use words in a different way, as fragments, and hint of meanings and emotions. The music is more orchestral than Wilderness with more instrumentation throughout the album. On tour, he was joined by Jim Dare Minuteman, Didz Hammond (Dirty Pretty Things), Angie Pollock (Goldfrapp), Sebastian Sternberg (Pleasure, Marina and the Diamonds), Kris Sonne and Amy Langley, thus giving the songs a more art-rock edge.
