As Suede began work on the songs that would become Autofiction, they decided to go back to basics. In a move that recalled their most formative days, Brett Anderson, Mat Osman, Simon Gilbert, Richard Oakes and Neil Codling schlepped to a rehearsal studio in deserted Kings Cross to collect a key, hump their own gear, set up and start playing.
Speaking about Autofiction, Brett Anderson said: "Autofiction is our punk record. No whistles and bells. Just the five of us in a room with all the glitches and fuck-ups revealed; the band themselves exposed in all their primal mess."
First single ‘She Still Leads Me On’ is the track that reconfigured what the album could be. A beautiful song written from Brett to his late mother.
As its title suggests, Autofiction is one of Anderson’s most personal records yet. Reflecting on the process of writing acclaimed works of memoir Coal Black Mornings and Afternoons With The Blinds Drawn helped Brett get a newfound perspective on himself as a performer and singer in the public eye, much of which has bled into the lyricism of Autofiction.
"Try Again" is the new, romantic synthpop single by German producer Mondmann and New Yorkers Bunny X, a collaboration that has been in the making for quite a while as Mondmann initially approached Bunny X about working together in mid-2021, however, at the time, Bunny X was still in the process of finishing up their album, Young & In Love.
The new single NOW! by Platronic was written, composed and recorded during the "White Nights" in a cottage in Finland. Kay and Sami tried to capture this special mood in their song. Maybe you can hear the serenity, the blue glimmering lake, the summer heat and the energy of the nature!
NOW! is a very atmospheric and philosophical piece of Dreampop, Chillout and 90’s Electronica. Platronic wants to encourage and inspire people to be brave! Love it, leave it or change it. It's your life and your time is NOW!
