Suede Singer Pens Tell-All Memoir

Brett Anderson has just inked a major publishing deal for a kiss-and-tell memoir, it can be confirmed.

It appears the book will be either entitled 'Cold Black Mornings' or 'Coal Black Mornings' - depending on which report you read in the British media.

The book, which is being praised by publisher Little Brown for its "sharp" writing, will explore the Britpop singer's upbringing and the band's early mega success in the 1990s.

It will be interesting to see if Anderson touches on the subject of how he lost his former girlfriend, Elastica‘s Justine Frischmann, to Britpop rival Damon Albarn.

“This is a memoir which is so very good we would have wanted to publish it, whoever the author,” says publisher Richard Beswick.

“The fact that it is by the founder of an internationally successful band of course adds to the attraction. But fundamentally it is a classic memoir, which can stand alongside books like This Boy’s Life and Alan Johnson’s memoirs, as well as music books such as those by Mark Oliver Everett and Tracey Thorn.”

The book is due out in early 2018.
