If you haven't been down to your friendly local newsagents yet you might not know that this week's NME is a special souvenir box set and includes all the wit and info of the regular mag plus a giant Kings Of Leon poster, 20% off Bench voucher and an astonishing free CD of Cure cover versions. Here's a sneak preview of a couple of the tracks.

…and The Big Pink krautify ‘Love Song’ from The Cure’s eighth studio album ‘Disintegration’.



Finally, check out Editors’ sublime version of 1989’s ‘Lullaby’:



The free CD has all these versions in full plus intriguing covers from British Sea Power, The Futureheads, Art Brut, Alkaline Trio and loads more.
