Just want everyone to understand that this is third hand info and is NOT 100% confirmed. I did contact Brian Gardner and he confirmed that he has worked on "new stuff" with them. Anyway, it's the first bit of good news we've had in awhile, so here it is:
"The Cure were in California on April 21, 2008 at the Mastering Lab.
Brian Gardner mastered the new album.
Robert Smith mixed it.
The new album will be a double.
I heard this personally from a source that was with The Cure, listening to their new album."
Ok, so if true, the album is done. So why is Universal holding it until September? They must have a good reason, right?
