The Cure frontman Robert Smith has said that the goth rockers have three new albums in the works, and one may arrive before the end of the year.
In a new interview with Zocalo, Smith confirmed that The Cure plan to release a record before the end of the year. “Actually I have prepared three albums, two of them more advanced,” Smith explains. “The first will be the one that we will release very soon. I think that the first single, or the whole album, will come out this Christmas, or a little earlier. It has the title of Live From the Moon and it will surely change its name.”

Live From The Moon marks the band’s first new album since 2008’s 4:13 Dream, but Smith claims that fans won’t have to wait too long for a follow-up to the forthcoming record.
“The second album, which I already have more advanced, refers to much freer pieces and with a more pronounced, stronger sound, and that to record them has to be live, yes, with that experience of putting together a concept based on the interpretation of the moment,” Smith explains. “The third, which is crazy, is a noise disc, with different aspects and environments, all based on experiences on a stage or on my paths, in situations where noise is present and to which we are so accustomed that we don’t pay attention.”
