Rock 'n' roll group, The Cure, is planning on releasing an album later this year. The new record will be titled 4:14 Scream and the new album will feature material that was meant to be on 4: 13 Dream.
The band's last studio album 4:13 Dream was originally released as a double LP, but only half of the material was released back in 2008, which left fans wondering what happened to the rest of the material, Billboard reported.
Back in March, the band announced plans to release 4:14 Scream. Turns out this was recorded back when the band worked on 4:13 Dream and it is just now being released for fans.
The band took to their official website and detailed more about the upcoming release. Frontman Robert Smith expanded on the plans for 4:14 Scream, in all capital letters.
A LTD EDITION '4:26 DREAM' DOUBLE CD ALBUM OF 26 SONGS (ALL REMIXED) - IE. 'THE ORIGINAL 4:13 DREAM SESSIONS CONCEPT ALBUM' (INCLUDING THE 'INSTRUMENTALS WITH WORDS') - OF WHICH 10 TRACKS OR MORE WILL BE PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED…
A LTD EDITION '4:14 SCREAM' SINGLE CD ALBUM OF 14 PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED SONGS - ALBEIT SOME OF THEM MAY ALSO BE ON '4:26 DREAM'… BUT THESE '4:14 SCREAM' VERSIONS WILL ALL HAVE WORDS AND VOCALS…"
Last month, in an interview with XFM, Smith explained that he was not happy with the releases, saying this music was recorded at a different time for the band and the Cure now has a new lineup and records with new band members while on tour.
"We're in a weird predicament in that I've finished singing and mixing an album that was made by a band that no longer exists. It's a bit of a sore point, really, to be honest, amongst this current lineup," said Smith.
Smith did also explained that he did have plans to record new music with the current Cure band.
