QuoteThe 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!

QuoteHaving revealed to NME earlier this year that the band had been hard at work on "two new albums and an hour of noise", now Smith has said that a year trapped inside due to COVID restrictions has made him very productive. The frontman was speaking on BBC 6 Music today (Wednesday September 9) to introduce his new collaboration with Gorillaz, which he said Damon Albarn first sent to him when he was "in the middle of finishing off the big song at the end of The Cure album" which he described as "10 minutes of intense doom and gloom".Speaking of his life throughout the coronavirus lockdown, Smith said: "I feel really sorry for the people who had plans this year, it's been a disaster. From my own perspective it's great that we got so much done last year. This year has just been – just not a year – it's just been completely weird.Our whole idea for this year was really finishing off the album we started last year, me finishing off the solo album and also, finishing digitising decades of stuff in order to make this film with Tim Pope about the history of the band. So, it's actually benefited me because there have been no other distractions, so I've actually got a lot of what I wanted to do, done."
QuoteIt's a heavy and dark record. I don't think there are any short songs on there."The description of Lou Reed's 'Berlin' when it came out was that it was the "'Sgt Pepper' of depression" – I don't know if we're that psychedelic but we are that depressed."It was a tough couple of years for everybody. A by-product of getting older is that people around you keep dying. We all lost relatives. Robert lost his brother, I lost a step-dad and father-in-law – while we were on the road too, which meant there was more strain."The group have recorded so many songs, Reeves isn't sure just how many albums frontman Robert Smith is planning.He added in an interview with Uncut magazine: "We started the record in January 2019 in Wales – we went in for about two months."We'd all been writing before that. So we got together and listened to it all, learned it, went into the studio and recorded it."There's enough material for two or three records, a lot of stuff."So one of the problems, when you've got enough for two records, is deciding which songs to bring to completion."Right now, I'm not 100 per cent sure where we're at. Are we at a record and a half? Are we two records finished?

QuoteRobert Smith has revealed that two new albums by The Cure have been recorded. Smith made the remarks during an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, where he was interviewed alongside Chvrches about their new collaboration, How Not To Drown, which was released yesterday. "Probably in about six weeks time I'll be able to say when everything's coming out and what we're doing next year and everything," said Smith. "So we were doing two albums and one of them's very, very doom and gloom and the other one isn't. And they're both very close to being done. I just have to decide who's going to mix them. That's really all I've got left to do."
QuoteSmith has been talking about releasing new Cure albums for years now, but it seems like he has a solo album in the works too."The reason I was doing something on my own was for exactly the same reason I was doing collaborations; I've always wanted to do an hour's worth of noise, and I didn't want it... The Cure, you wait 10 years and then we bring out an album that's just noise. So it was just like, 'No,'" he explained. "That was me doing the rest of the band. That 'no' was a band no. So I've been just having fun with that really."
