It’s been 11 years since The Cure’s last album, 2008’s 4:13 Dream, and rumors of a new Cure album have been swirling around ever since, especially as Robert Smith et al. have debuted new material in concerts. Now Smith is saying that there are three new Cure albums in the words, and the first one — tentatively titled Live From the Moon — may be released by Christmas. Smith has described the album, which was influenced by the recent deaths of Smith’s father, mother, and brother, as “very much on the darker side of the spectrum” and “a little bit more doom and gloom.”
