Popular English rock band The Cure are gearing up for the release of their new album. The upcoming record – titled ‘4:14 Scream’ – is their first release since 2008 and the album ‘4:13 Dream’, which was supposed to be a double LP. It has been reported that the ‘Friday I’m In Love’ musicians’ new record will feature material that was originally written for their previous album.
In March 2014, the band revealed their plans to release ‘4:14 Scream’, which was reportedly recorded at the same time as ‘4:13 Dream’. The news has been announced on April 1, 2014 by frontman Robert Smith, in a blog post on the band’s official website. However, Smith confessed on March 30, 2014 that he was not happy with the releases, as they were recorded with a different Cure lineup than the one he is working with now.
He said, “We’re in a weird predicament in that I’ve finished singing and mixing an album that was made by a band that no longer exists. It’s a bit of a sore point, really, to be honest, amongst this current lineup.” Smith went on to say that commercial, as well as temporal pressure limited the ‘Pictures Of You’ musicians to a single album back in 2008 and that he added words and vocals to the second helping of songs a year and a half ago.
Despite this, Smith did not mention anything about the possibility of recording new music with the current lineup.
