Roger O'Donnell says new music from The Cure "worth the wait"


The Cure’s Roger O’Donnell has been speaking about his new solo record has been teasing new music from the band saying it will be “worth the wait”.

The keyboardist from the band has today released his new LP Two Ravens via 99X10 Records/Caroline International. The album was recorded over five days at Air Edel studios in London and features the likes the likes of Jen Pague, Llisa Liubarskaya, Miriam Wakeling, Aled Jones, Nadine Nagen and Daniel Gea.

Speaking about his new album to NME, he revealed that it was inspired by the mundane nature of living in the English countryside: “I’d just come home from the 2016 tour with The Cure to where I live in the middle of nowhere in Devon – having spent the whole tour longing to be home and to make a cup of tea. I got home in the middle of winter, all alone, and realised how bleak it was.”

He continued: “Still, I had a lot of bottled up emotion and creativity, there was nothing else to do, so I made some music that was a lot more personal.

O’Donnell then went on to discuss what fans should expect from new material from The Cure as he teased: “We’re finishing the record, it’s pretty much done. Whenever Robert does an interview, it’s interesting for the rest of the band to find out what we’re doing as well! But we’re just mixing and mastering the record now. There’s no rush, is there? It’s been 12 years.

“It is an amazing record though and totally worth waiting for. We’re very excited by it.”
