Robert Smith told to NME new album(s) details.
"So I've been working on two Cure albums, and one of them is finished. Unfortunately, it's the second one that's finished. On the other I've got to do four vocals, and there are 10 songs on each album. We're mixing next month on April 1, so I've got three weeks left."
"I know what it's called – it's called ‘Songs Of A Lost World’. It's got artwork, it's got a running order, it's almost done! They're so slow because of vinyl, but it might come in September. I'd rather it just came out. I can't stand the anticipation."
"Well the first Cure album is relentless doom and gloom. It's the doomiest thing that we've ever done. The second one is upbeat, and my [solo] one won't be out until next year.
"I have to keep revisiting it. It's a thing I've wanted to do for so many years. I realise I've only got one shot at doing it, so I've now started to add real instruments and acoustic instruments, whereas this time two years ago it was literally just feedback – but I've kind of grown a bit disenchanted with it. I'd listened to it like three times and I think it's rubbish."
