A Double CD for The Cure's 13th Record?


A Double CD for The Cure's 13th Record?


The Cure's frontman is seeking the possibility to issue two versions of their new album but for a price of one.

The Cure might have a double album for the price of one for their next album. Frontman Robert Smith is still considering to put his remix and other's in a single package but not making it for a commercial purpose.

Smith told Billboard magazine, “What will probably happen is that a double album will come out like a limited edition, mixed by me, a single-disc version, which I assume will be primarily chosen by the label, might get mixed by someone else in order to have a different thing."

He added, " There's a concern Cure fans will feel like they have to get both, but the fact is, I've agreed to sell the double version at a single album price, because I feel that strongly about it. It is almost impossible to get a double album nowadays. I naively thought my standing as an artist would push aside all objections, but the world gets ever more commercial as it turns.”

"They've changed quite a lot, but the basic melody and chord structure has remained," Smith said of the new record. However, true to Cure nature, materials in the yet untitled album will span the issues on material world, relationship, religion and politic. He said, "They're very upfront and dynamic. People will be surprised how stripped-down and in-your-face the record is."

The band will preview some of the new materials in a North American tour this fall. The CD itself is planned to be released this October.

Tracks that have made the cut so far are:

  • "Lusting Here in Your Mind"
  • "The Hungry Ghost"
  • "The Perfect Boy"
  • "Christmas Without You"
  • "Please Come Home"
