The Cure have announced that they will release a new single each month leading up to the release of their 13th studio album in September.
Robert Smith and co will drop the first single from the as-yet untitled album on May 13, and intend to release a different a- and b-side single on the thirteenth of each month until the album is released on September 13.
The first single, ‘The Only One’, includes the b-side ‘NY Trip’. The second single, ‘Freakshow’ — due out June 13 — contains the b-side ‘All Kinds Of Stuff’.
Both b-sides are exclusive to the singles and will not appear on the full-length album. They were produced by Smith and Keith Uddin.
The July 13 and August 13 singles will be announced shortly.
The band are set to kick off an extensive US tour in support of the new album beginning May 9, as previously reported.
