Suede have announced details of Autofiction: Expanded. Set for release on 8th December, the major new collection arrives in celebration of the band’s ninth studio album, Autofiction, one year since its initial release and matched with rare bonus tracks, unheard material, and a full live album.

Debuting at #2 in the UK Albums Chart, Autofiction marked Suede’s highest charting LP since 1999’s Head Music. The album has been received as a career best with the NME hailing “one of the greatest comebacks of the 21st Century”, The Observer applauding “a late-career triumph”, MOJO praising “an urgent, heroic and gothically-attuned take on guitar rock” in their Top Ten Albums of the Year, whilst Uncut heard Suede’s “best album in decades”.

The upcoming Autofiction: Expanded release will be available digitally and in a 3 CD set, with CD 1 featuring the essential Autofiction studio album.

CD 2 features six extra tracks and rarities. Four of the songs, ‘The Sadness In You, The Sadness In Me’, ‘Days Like Dead Moths’,‘The Prey’ and ‘Still Waiting’ were only available during the first week following the album’s original 2022 release, until now. The disc also includes ‘You Don’t Know Me’, as featured on the Japanese edition of Autofiction and, ‘There Is No Me If There Is No You’ – an as yet unreleased song recorded by Suede during the Autofiction album sessions.

CD 3 contains the new Autofiction live album, recorded at shows across Suede’s entirely sold-out UK tour in March 2023.

The new live album captures the feral spirit of Autofiction – a record that sees Suede reconnecting with the same energy they harnessed when they began making music over 30 years ago. “Autofiction is Suede’s punk record,” Brett Anderson said. “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.”

In June 2024, Suede will join the Manic Street Preachers for a massive co-headline tour of the UK and Ireland’s premier outdoor venues including Cardiff Castle, Manchester Castlefield Bowl, Leeds’ Millennium Square and Eden Sessions, St Austell. The tour has almost completely sold out, with the last few tickets for Edinburgh Castle and London’s Alexandra Palace Park available via and

Suede and the Manic Street Preachers’ UK shows follow a sold out 2022 joint US tour that saw both bands receive a fantastic reception. The groups are also playing several dates in Asia together in November in Taiwan, Singapore and Japan.

Autofiction: Expanded is available on 3CD, and digitally, via BMG from 8th December. Pre-order here.
