" "Lullaby" is featured in the episode entitled "Fire Sale" of HBO's Entourage. Certainly a nice change of pace with a show that normally uses rap and hip hop!" (Thanks Kate and Bernie)

"This is a Youtube link to a video of the Ecuadorian Tribute band “Catch” playing UTS last Saturday in Guayaquil, Ecuador. It’s not perfect (it was the first time they played it live) but I think it is inspiring to see the truly worldwide influence of The Cure’s music (even unreleased music!)." (Thanks Flavio)
And here's The Baby Screams covering UTS on Sept. 13th. (Thanks Vincure)

Don't worry too much about that "may be released" bit. NME is just using an old quote from earlier this year. (Thanks Steven)

THIS MTV SHOW JUST CAME UP OUT OF NOWHERE WE WERENT INTENDING PLAYING AGAIN FOR A WHILE BUT WE WERE OFFERED THIS HEADLINE SPOT IN THE WAY WE SOMETIMES ARE AND HAD THE IDEA OF PREMIERING THE NEW ALBUM LIVE IN ROME...
QUITE AMBITIOUS...AND QUITE EXCITING!
MTV HAVE AGREED TO AIR AT LEAST A CUT DOWN VERSION (AN MTV HOUR IS ONLY 45 MINUTES OR SO AND THE ALBUM IS 53+) ON EVERY MTV EUROPEAN STATION - HOPEFULLY WITHIN A WEEK OF THE EVENT - AT THE LATEST BEFORE NOVEMBER ENDS - AND IT WILL BE BROADCAST IN THE USA TOO*...
AND YOU EVER KNOW IT MIGHT MAKE ITS WAY ONTO YOUTUBE?!!
*MORE NEWS HERE WHEN I CAN CONFIRM THE DETAILS
BETTER START REHEARSING NOW...
PS - THE 2ND HOUR (?ENCORE?!!) WILL LIKELY BE A WALK DOWN MEMORY LANE... AND MAYBE VH1 CLASSIC MIGHT SHOW IT IF WE DONT PLAY ANY B-SIDES?!!
Fuck VH1, play some b-sides!!!

PERFORMING THE NEW ALBUM LIVE FOR AN HOUR ON TV BEFORE IT GETS RELEASED...CAN IT HAPPEN?
Can I get an "Oh hell yes!"? And what's that photo that RS posted? It has to be a hint.
Update: V and I have put our heads together, and the always brilliant V has deduced that the RS image is a somewhat altered version of the MTV logo. Why do we think this? Check out the bottom of the RS image. See the tops of those letters? We are pretty sure it says MUSIC T. Now look at that official MTV logo. Notice the placing of the letters? Look at where the T is. Right below the "door". Same as in the RS image. We could be wrong, but we are both satisfied for now. If this tv show happens, Robert seems to be hinting that it would air on MTV. Case closed. : )
