The ’80s seem a million years ago right now, but one of its biggest acts, The Cure, could be just the tonic we need right now to lighten the heavy load that’s upon us all. Well, if the band’s founder and front-man Robert Smith’s timeframe is right, we could well be seeing new music from him and the band some time in the very near future.
It’s been almost 12 years since Smith and Co released new music, their last effort was way back in 2008 when the band released 4:13 Dream. But now, just like waiting for the proverbial bus, Smith has explained that there is not just one, but three Cure albums in the works.
Smith talked with NME earlier this year when the band was honored at NME’s 2020 awards with the ‘Best Festival Headliner’ and went into a little detail about new music arriving. He explained that there were two albums in the works from The Cure at this time and that the third album is “just me.”
Smith told NME: “The first one will definitely be out soon, we’re wrapping it up now and it’s going to be mixed. But until it’s completed, no one will believe me. I look forward to it coming out more than anyone else, trust me!” Smith also added a caveat though saying: “I’m too old to commit to idiot things like that, wait and see.”
It’s hard to believe that last year, The Cure’s first album ‘Three Imaginary Boys’ turned 40.
