The Cure Frontman Insecure About The Latest Album



Robert Smith, The Cure frontman, has some insecurities about the band’s latest album.

He thinks it will be a letdown for their fans due to the fact that the album features members who are no longer part of the team.

4:14 Scream was supposed to be a companion album of the 2008’s version 4:13 dream.

It features many tracks recorded during the same session.

Almost five years after, his bandmates have moved on and he has found himself mixing a new album that actually presents ‘a bit of sore point’ for the members left in the band.

Smith told Britain’s XFM radio,

“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. I’m not sure it happens that often.”

He continued: “This band is trying to make an album with this line-up, and it’s an album that I’m tempted to make, that’s really different to anything else we’ve done. So trying to be convinced that I should release the second half of what is effectively an album that came out in 2008, it’s a bit of a sore point, really, to be honest, amongst this current line-up.”

Smith also explains he and his left bandmates hoped to release the 4:13 songs as a double album, but he wasn’t satisfied with the lyrics on some of the songs.

He said, “I just didn’t think the words were good enough.”
