The wait for The Cure’s new studio album seems to be almost over. The band’s frontman Robert Smith revealed in a recent interview that they are working on a follow up to 2008’s 4:13 Dream, which could see the light by the end of 2019. And not only that, the British alternative rockers have two more albums coming after that.
Speaking with Zocalo, Smith revealed that he has “prepared” three new albums with The Cure, with the first one having a working title Live From the Moon.
“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” – Smith revealed.
According to Smith, the second album will feature “freer pieces and with a more pronounced, stronger sound,” while the third one is described as “a noise disc, with different aspects and environments, all based on experiences on a stage.”
The Cure was quite active this year, embarking on a tour that saw them playing mostly festival dates across Europe, U.S., Asia, and Australia. This was part of the band’s celebration efforts for their 40th anniversary. The band also released a documentary this year, which chronicles their experience during the tour.
