Robert working with Eat Static
Update (08/03/15): The band's Facebook has been updated with the news.
Update (07/27/15): Full track posted on BandCamp. Album now available to download.
Update (06/28/15): A short sample of 'In All Worlds'.
On April 1st, the Eat Static Facebook posted the following news update, which I ignored due to it being April Fools Day, and no other confirmation from any other source:
"A SUPER SPECIAL NEWS FLASH FOLKS!! ROBERT SMITH (THE CURE) HAS COLLABORATED WITH EAT STATIC FOR A TRACK ON THE NEW ALBUM!!! Many of you have been asking about the release date/album delay and I told ya something special might happen..well,after many years of attempting to make this a reality,i can reveal that the stars were finally aligned and Robert is singing and playing 6 string bass on a brand new Static tune- ''In All Worlds...'' He has been a long time fan of Static and I have loved the Cure since 1981 so this happening is a BIG deal for me...and he's done an AMAZING job! We're now full steam ahead on getting the album done and dusted so I hope to have it out around the end of May! It'll be worth the wait i hope! BOOOOOOM!!"
But now a new update from June 22nd seems to indicate that it's true:
"Finally have some updated news for you regarding the new release..i know i said originally it would be a solstice release but technical difficulties made it impossible to hit that date.. All has been resolved now and the big wheels are in motion and i can give you the FINAL official release date - 31st JULY..As promised,I'll be setting up pre-orders as of next week so those who want the first batch can get in quick... massive apologies for the delays but the chance to have and to make happen,the collab with Robert Smith just had to be,as it was a once in a lifetime magical opportunity!"
Thanks Michele (fmjews), and sorry for not posting it back in April, but had to wait and make sure it wasn't a joke.
