It’s a good day in the music world as news came in today that The Cure’s Robert Smith is about to start working on a new album for his band! The wait was long, a good ten years it took, but the singer lets us know that new and upcoming musicians have inspired him to do something new.
The news came when Robert Smith sat down for an interview with The Guardian, where he explained his plan for the new album. He got motivated by this year’s edition of the Meltdown Festival. Even though his motivation, Robert Smith admitted that he didn’t write anything after the last album, 4:13 Dream (2008).
“I’ve hardly written any words since then. I think there’s only so many times you can sing certain emotions. I have tried to write songs about something other than how I felt, but they’re dry, they’re intellectual, and that’s not me.” – Robert Smith
That’s not something that is holding our pioneer back, while he didn’t write songs for The Cure in 10 years, he got inspired by the enthusiasm the musicians showed on Meltdown Festival.
“I’ve committed myself to going into the studio and creating songs for the band, which I haven’t done for ten years. Meltdown has inspired me to do something new because I’m listening to new bands. I’m enthused by their enthusiasm. So if it doesn’t work, I’ll be pretty upset, because it will mean that the songs aren’t good enough.”- Robert Smith
This band is one that my mom passed on to me when I was young, it brought me in a beautiful world of rock music so that Robert Smith is making plans to write an album, that’s just exciting!
