As Robert Smith and Chvrches launch new collaboration How Not To Drown, Smith reveals there are two new albums from The Cure almost ready to go
Robert Smith has revealed that two new albums by The Cure have been recorded. Smith made the remarks during an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, where he was interviewed alongside Chvrches about their new collaboration, How Not To Drown, which was released yesterday.
"Probably in about six weeks time I'll be able to say when everything's coming out and what we're doing next year and everything," said Smith. "So we were doing two albums and one of them's very, very doom and gloom and the other one isn't. And they're both very close to being done. I just have to decide who's going to mix them. That's really all I've got left to do."
the interview, Chvrches reveal how the collaboration with Smith came
about. "It was a song that we had already been writing for the record,"
said singer Lauren Mayberry, "and then our manager had been technically
sniffing about trying to see if maybe The Cure were going to tour again
and maybe we could try and get a support slot or something.
