The Invisibles

Album: The Blue Hour (2018)
  • This theatrical slow-burner finds a despairing Brett Anderson unable to find love.

    We are the invisibles
    Plain and lonely
    It's funny how it's always out of reach
  • The song features The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra with an orchestral arrangement from Craig Armstrong, who previously worked with Suede on their 1996 Coming Up album. Armstrong has also worked on films such as Romeo + Juliet and The Bone Collector.
  • The song's music video was directed by photographer Roger Sargent, who previously worked with Suede on the feature film that accompanied their 2015 album, Night Thoughts. The woman swinging back and forth lip synching to the vocals is Maltese actress and dancer, Marama Corlett, whose resume includes playing Aki in Blood Drive and Linda in Sick Note.
