The Cure have revealed that they’re planning on releasing a new studio album in the near future.
Their last record was 2008’s 4:13 Dream, but after vocalist and guitarist Robert Smith curated London’s Meltdown festival earlier this year, he says he’s been inspired to return to the studio to work on new material.
Speaking with SiriusXM following the news that they would be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in March next year, Smith says:
I’ve listened to so many new bands and met so many of them that’s it’s inspired me to do something new. So yes, we’re going in about six weeks time to finish off what will be our first album for more than a decade. So it’s very exciting times for us all round.
