The Cure cover Beatles' 'Hello Goodbye'
Judging by no Porl, Roger, or Reeves in the band, and by the stickers on Robert's guitar, this appears to have been recorded between 2009 - 2011. Guessing 2011 based on this first being reported by The Sun on April 11th, 2011. Articles here.
Also, according to The Art of McCartney website, Robert will do a solo cover of 'C Moon' by Wings. It will not be on the standard CD, only the Deluxe Set & Triple Vinyl Shoulder Pack. Press release says if you pre-order , you get a download now of 'Hello Goodbye'.
Update (09/10/14): The track is now available to download (at Amazon, iTunes, etc.), either on its own or with a pre-order of the album.
From The Guardian:
Hear the Cure cover the Beatles on their first new recording for six years – exclusive
Version of Hello Goodbye comes from forthcoming all-star tribute album to Sir Paul McCartney
November 17 sees the release of the tribute album to end tribute albums – a 34-song salute to Sir Paul McCartney, featuring the likes of Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, Kiss, Barry Gibb, Dr John, BB King and more. Needless to say, The Art of McCartney comes in 327 formats of varying levels of deluxitude, from a simple two-CD set all the way up to a box set featuring a “specially designed Hofner violin bass shaped USB with flac files of the album”.
But you want to know what the music’s like, don’t you? Here’s a very special taste, in the form of the first new recording from the Cure for six years – a version of Hello Goodbye, featuring Sir Paul’s son James on keyboards. Have a listen and let us know what you think.
