New version of 'A Few Hours After This'
Update: Here's a better quality upload. Thanks TCDB. And thanks to @weareglitter for the original audio upload. As always, if anyone needs it to be removed, just let me know and it will be gone in a flash.
You can watch the episode on BBC iPlayer and at Amazon (Season 4 Episode 2).
Also, please release this properly. Maybe a digital download for charity?
A new version of 'A Few Hours After This' played during tonight's episode of 'Luther'. Turns out 'Luther' creator Neal Cross is a huge Cure fan, and asked to use the song in the episode, and Robert recorded a new version for him.
Here's the story from The Daily Record:
"The return of Luther also gave Neil a teenage kick when his idol Robert Smith of The Cure provided a song for the soundtrack.
He said: “I have been an obsessive fan of The Cure since I was 13.
“After we had finished shooting the second episode of this special, I phoned the producer and said there is this really obscure Cure track – an extra track on a 12-inch single called A Few Hours After This – which I have always loved and think it would really go.
“Long story short, we contacted Robert Smith and he re-recorded the song. That was one of those moments where I wanted to hijack the Tardis and go back and see my teenage self and say, ‘One day…’" (Thanks @weareglitter)
