Brett Anderson reveals previously unreleased solo track, ‘Forest Lullaby’ – Listen

Brett Anderson to Release Solo Recordings Box Set on March 17TH

Brett Anderson has revealed a previously unreleased solo track, ‘Forest Lullaby’. The song is taken from the CD version of his forthcoming box set ‘Brett Anderson – Collected Solo Work’ which is released on March 17th through Demon Music.

Listen to ‘Forest Lullaby’ BELOW:

Following the hugely successful Suede reformation and critical acclaim for ‘Bloodsports’ and ‘Night Thoughts’, Brett Anderson will release his ‘Collected Solo Work’ box set on March 17th – available on both CD and Vinyl. The 5 CDs worth of music contain 4 original studio albums (each featuring bonus tracks), a bonus live CD featuring hard to find recordings from 2010 and 2011, as well as two unreleased tracks – one of which is ‘Forest Lullaby’. The box set will also contain a DVD featuring an interview with Brett Anderson.

Brett said of the release:

“These are the four solo albums I made between 2007 and 2011. It was an exciting time for me as an artist; I had fallen out of love with being in bands and I wanted to try to explore things and test myself and grow beyond those parameters. I think you can see the development in the work; from the clumsy fumblings of the debut through to the self-conscious minimalism of Wilderness and finally to the apogee of Slow Attack and the growl and gnarl of Black Rainbows, there is hopefully a sense that I was learning through my mistakes and plotting points on a creative path. It was lonely and hard sometimes but I’m proud that I had the courage to wander somewhere different. The vital lessons I learnt, both in art and in life, fed directly into where I currently find myself and into my journey with Suede.”
