There is hope: The Cure's album comes out “in 2024”

The Cure has been preparing a new album for some time called 'Songs of the Lost World'. The title has been confirmed, it has given its name to a tour, songs have been released… but the album remains unofficially announced and of course unreleased. The album was supposed to come out in 2022, but evidently this has not happened. In 2023, neither.

But there is hope: Robert Smith has just put up a series of paintings for sale on eBay, the proceeds of which will go to support the British non-profit organization Heart Research UK. This organization has verified that 'Songs of the Lost World' will go on sale “in 2024.”

The Cure has also confirmed that its new album is on the way. Smith's paintings are titled with the names of three confirmed songs from 'Songs of the Lost World', these are, 'Alone', 'And Nothing is Forever' and 'Endsong'. In networks, The Cure has confirmed that these songs will be included in the band's “next album.” Less is nothing.

The Cure made headlines last year for confronting Ticketmaster, denouncing the high price of ticket management fees. Smith managed to have 7,000 fraudulent tickets canceled and Ticketmaster to return the cost of management fees to his fans.

This June – at the end of the month – marks twenty years since the release of The Cure's penultimate album, the self-titled album. The last one, '4:13 Dream', was released in 2008. It seems that 2024 will finally see its sequel.
