Robert Smith: workaholic? Maybe so, if a new interview with Spanish-language publication Zócalo is to be believed. The enigmatic frontman of The Cure told them that he has no less than three new Cure projects he’s currently readying for release.
According to Google Translate, by way of Stereogum, Smith told the outlet the long-discussed Live From the Moon will be the first of his creative endeavors out of the gate.
“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. “The second album, which I already have more advanced, refers to much freer pieces and with a more pronounced, stronger sound. And that to record them has to be live, yes, with that experience of putting together a concept based on the interpretation of the moment.”
While that sounds ambitious (and keep in mind, it has been translated from Spanish), wait until you hear about the next one: “The third, which is crazy, is a noise disc, with different aspects and environments, all based on experiences on a stage or on my paths, in situations where noise is present and to which we are so accustomed that we don’t pay attention,” Smith explained.
The Cure performed at Austin City Limits fest over the weekend. Watch a video of them playing “Just Like Heaven” below.
