MTV UK has an interview with Robert. Unfortunately, it's another one of those "If you're not in the UK or Ireland, you can't watch it" clips. So here's the transcript:
Robert says the album was recorded entirely in east sussex.
Says he always wanted the 13th album to be a big thing to celebrate 30 years.
Says to mark the occasion he wanted to release the upbeat stuff first. Then work on the darker stuff later in the year to suit the weather!
He describes the whole MTV email vs Studios ideas again.
Says he is not being ironic when he looks back the history of the band.
He is happy with their back catalogue and the era from which the band first came from.
Says he will keep going as long as he is happy to be in a group called The Cure.
The Only One plays throughout the entire interview except when a brief clip of Lovecats plays.
