The music world is already looking forward to a new album from The Cure, which could perhaps be released before the new year — but Robert Smith says he and his band have plenty more where that came from.
In a new interview with Zocalo, the front man revealed that he has put together three separate albums for the Cure;
“Actually I have prepared three albums, two of them more advanced. The first will be the one that we will release very soon. I think that the first single, or the whole album, will come out this Christmas, or a little earlier. It has the title of ‘Live From the Moon’ and it will surely change its name,” said Smith.
As quoted by the NME, Smith also basically said the second new record will follow the first rather quickly:
“The second album, which I already have more advanced, refers to much freer pieces and with a more pronounced, stronger sound, and that to record them has to be live, yes, with that experience of putting together a concept based on the interpretation of the moment.”
Needless to say, this is pretty exciting news for Cure fans. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band’s most recent album was 2008’s 4:13 Dream, so it’s been a while.
As for how the Cure sounds and looks in its current form, the band’s recent Pasadena Daydream festival in Southern California was just fantastic — so here’s hoping the renewed energy translated as successfully into the studio as it did on stage.
