The Cure have not one, but three new albums in the works

The band have got their work cut out for them.

UK goth-rockers The Cure have revealed that not only is the first album in a decade arriving soon, but two others will quickly follow.

We already knew one album, speculatively titled Live From The Moon, was on its way. Influenced by the loss of family members, frontman Robert Smith said he hoped the dark record would be out by the end of the year. Now, in an interview with Zocalo (translated by NME), Smith has also spilled the beans on what to expect from the additional two forthcoming releases.

“The second album, which I already have more advanced, refers to much freer pieces and with a more pronounced, stronger sound, and that to record them has to be live, yes, with that experience of putting together a concept based on the interpretation of the moment,” he said.

The third LP in the works will be more of a “noise disc”, based on Smith’s life experiences “where noise is present and to which we are so accustomed that we don’t pay attention”.
