Speaking to BBC Newsbeat (via Digital Spy), Anderson described the band's comeback as being "temporarily permanent" and that beyond next month's show they have no further gigs booked. Anderson said, "We're going to see how we feel about it. I don't think any one of us wants to do this unless it feels really special. I don't have some secret agenda written down. It just has to feel right."
As for returning to the studio, the singer continued, "We haven't got a big plan sorted out. We're doing it quite spontaneously and our mantra is, 'We'll carry on doing it until it stops being special.'"
Suede's only other confirmed activity is, as previously reported by Spinner, a two-disc greatest hits album released on Monday (Nov. 1).
According to Anderson the process of compiling the album was far from simple. The singer explained, "'The Best Of' could have been six CDs. It ended up a double CD. It was really hard choosing songs and throwing songs out. I tried to be really objective about it and not choose anything for any political reason -- just choose exactly what I thought represented the best of the band, because it's our legacy."
