The Cure’s Robert Smith says new album will “definitely” arrive in 2020


The Cure‘s Robert Smith has said that a new album from the band will “definitely” arrive in 2020.

The alt-rock icons, who are yet to release the follow-up to 2008’s ‘4:13 Dream’, previously revealed that three new records were in the works.

Speaking at the 2020 NME Awards, Smith confirmed that a new record will finally see the light of day this year.


“The first one will definitely be out soon, we’re wrapping it up now and it’s going to be mixed. But until it’s completed, no one will believe me. I look forward to it coming out more than anyone else, trust me!”

However, his word wasn’t *exactly* final.

“I’m too old to commit to idiot things like that, wait and see,” he said.

When asked about the other two, Smith said: “There’s only two, the third thing is just me, it’s just an hour of noise.”

Smith’s comments came shortly after the band won Best Festival Headliner as supported by CanO Water. 


He said of the honour: “Personally I had the most fun ever last year, they were the best shows this band ever played. I’m prouder than ever to be the singer of The Cure.”

The night opened with a performance of ‘Deal Wiv it’ from Mura Masa and Slowthai. Performances also came from AJ Tracey, Yungblud, Beabadoobee and show closers The 1975.
