I believe that this is the longest time gap between two songs I’ve written about by the same artist. Yesterday’s Suede song, “Metal Mickey,” originally came out as a single in 1992, and today’s Suede song, the gloriously soaring “She Still Leads Me On” came out in 2022. That’s thirty years. Of course, given that which songs I write about and don’t write about is the very definition of arbitrary, it’s also a statistic that means nothing — like postseason counting stats — but I figured that I would point that out anyways.
