The goth rockers’ newest project could be their darkest yet.
The Cure’s Robert Smith has revealed some additional info about their 14th studio album which is currently in the works.
In an interview with the LA Times, Smith said the new project currently has a working title of Live From the Moon, inspired by the 50th anniversary of the 1969 moon landing. “I’ve always been a stargazer,” Smith told the paper.
The frontman also said the album will be on the “darker side of the spectrum”, influenced by the recent loss of Smith’s mother, father and brother. Similar to Disintegration, it will contain soundscapes and washes of sound that ensure it’s not all “doom and gloom”.
Following their performance at Pasadena Daydream Festival, Smith said the band will head back to the recording studio and finish off the vocals. No release date for “Live From the Moon” has been locked in.
