The Cure confirm that their first new album in 10 years is finished
With a huge headline slot at this year’s Glastonbury Festival coming up, The Cure’s enigmatic frontman Robert Smith has announced that the band’s eagerly awaited follow up to 2008’s 4:13_Dream is finally finished.
The NME reports on Smith speaking on The John Maytham Show, “We’ve enjoyed [the shows] and we’ve just recorded a new album for the first time in 10 years,” Smith explained, insisting, “I’m still doing this for the right reasons.”
He also added, “We cover different styles of music, but because it’s us doing it, it sounds like us.” We’re not sure Smith could ever sound like anything other than himself.
With such a big summer ahead of huge festival slots it remains to be seen whether the new album will land before or after the band tour across the globe. But whichever way it come we’ll be stoked to hear some new music from the icons.
