Robert Smith Hesitant in Releasing Next Cure Album

Announcing an album earlier this year, Robert Smith of the Cure is having second thoughts about releasing it. Robert Smith Hesitant in Releasing Next Cure Album

Earlier this year, a new Cure album, one following up 2008’s 4:13 Dream, had been announced, but with scant information revealed at the time. One significant point was, it’s essentially a sequel going by the name of 4:14 Scream, but in a recent XFM interview, frontman Robert Smith ultimately revealed he’s hesitant to have the project see the light of day

Why? According to Smith, the first release was made by a completely different band at a different time in their career. Smith explained: “This band is trying to make an album with this lineup, and it’s an album that I’m tempted to make, that’s really different to anything else we’ve done. So trying to be convinced that I should release what is the second half of an album that effectively came out in 2008, it’s a bit of a sore point, to be honest, amongst this current lineup.”

Smith further went onto explain that while the music has been there, the lyrics weren’t. As a result, he re-wrote everything.

While the band, according to Smith, plans to put out the album in the dead of summer, it may be released on Fiction – their home up until a few years ago. Explaining this decision and the new sound, he said: “It’s an album that is really different to anything else we’ve done. People who want to hear it will hear it and those that don’t, don’t. They’ll just keep dancing to Close To Me and Love Cats.”
