The Cure frontman Robert Smith is about to release an hour worth of noise as a solo album.
The news was revealed in a new interview with Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe where Smith said the following: “I’ve always wanted to do an hour’s worth of noise, and I didn’t want it to be The Cure. You wait ten years and then we bring out an album that’s just noise. So it was just like, ‘No’ – that was me doing the rest of the band. That ‘no’ was a band no. So I’ve been just having fun with that really.”
Smith was featured alongside Chvrches with whom he teamed up to release the single “How Not To Drown”, ahead of the band’s new album “Screen Violence”. ”
