The Cure is set to release a new album and fans just couldn’t wait what to expect from the band on their upcoming release.
According to an NME report, tracks expected to be on the upcoming album were the tracks intended to be released together with their 2008 release “4:13 Dream.”
Robert Smith however confirmed that few songs from that record should be expected from the upcoming release together with brand new tracks that the band would work on.
“There’s new stuff that we’re doing with this line-up and stuff we finished with the old line up,” Smith said.
Smith expressed his disappointment after the label denied a double album release the last time, which the songs for the upcoming record would come from.
The Cure released a single album in 2008 and kept the other songs for 2008.
“Honestly? Just pure bloody mindedness,” he said.
“I was so f*cking angry that [the label] wouldn’t release a double album that I wouldn’t give them the other songs.” In addition to that, the 57-year-old singer expects a new sound from the band after the group added new members that would give their sound a different twist.
The Cure added Reeves Gabrels to work with them on the new album.
“A lot of stuff happened, unfortunately, with the last line-up of the band,” said the vocalist.
“People forget sometimes that even when you get older, when you play music with people, there’s a very intense relationship there and when that breaks down then it’s very difficult to just pretend it doesn’t matter.” “The last line-up, there were a number of reasons why I felt unable to complete what we were doing.
It was impossible to just get another line-up and bang out the songs we didn’t release; it would have been wrong.” “We’re playing in May in America and then I don’t think we’ll play again until late September.
So it’ll probably come out in that summer ‘dead air’ period for albums.”
