The track features on a new double A-side single from the Scottish band
The full version of The Cure‘s Robert Smith’s cover of The Twilight Sad’s ‘There’s A Girl In The Corner’ has been revealed.
The cover was previously teased earlier this year, and features on the flipside of the Scottish group’s new single ‘It Never Was The Same’, which is released on June 15.
“After we recorded [album] ‘Nobody Wants to Be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave’, I sent it to Robert to have a listen, and he said it was ‘BEAUTIFUL’,” guitarist Andy McFarlane told the Guardian. “We wanted to do something special for the ‘It Never Was the Same’ single, as it was going to be the last release from the album. I knew it was a pretty far-fetched idea, but thought I might as well chance my arm and ask Robert if he’d be up for covering one of our songs to feature as a double A-side. I couldn’t believe it when he replied, saying he’d like to cover ‘There’s a Girl in the Corner’.”
McFarlane continued: “He sent it over when we were playing San Francisco in March, and we listened to it over and over in the van, driving out after the gig. Hearing someone that we’ve all looked up to for so long sing and play one of our songs is definitely one of the most surreal moments we’ve ever had.”
