Apparently the band's "press release" for the tour 2022 talks about the new album (no title, no release date yet):

Quote from: undefinedFans will be treated to a 135 minute show, with mention in a press release of a "67 minute" new album that is yet to be announced.

In a tweet to fans, Smith also confirmed that shows in the rest of the world were being "finalised" and would "announced in due course" – as well as promising to air material from the new album.

My desire to listen to a new Cure album is overwhelming too...

QuoteThe band just announced that they've added a third night at London's SSE Arena at Wembley in December, and those concerts wrap up their fall European/UK tour. Updated dates are listed below.

With that news, Robert went on Twitter with his caps lock on to address some questions fans around the world are wondering. "YES, WE WILL BE PLAYING A LOT OF OTHER SHOWS IN PLACES THAT ARE NOT EUROPE... BUT THERE DOESN'T SEEM MUCH POINT ANNOUNCING ANY MORE THAN THAT UNTIL WE ANNOUNCE ACTUAL DATES... WHICH WILL BE VERY SOON."

And then on the subject of new music, he tweeted, "WE WILL BE PERFORMING SONGS FROM A NEW ALBUM WHEN WE NEXT PLAY... OR WE WON'T BE PLAYING AT ALL! AND I REALLY WANT TO PLAY... SO THAT MEANS..." and then finally "...IT MEANS MY DESIRE TO RELEASE A NEW ALBUM IS OVERWHELMING! X"

QuoteSo I've been working on two Cure albums, and one of them is finished," Smith told NME. "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.

He continued: "I know what it's called – it's called 'Songs Of The 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.
