In a new interview with Zócalo, The Cure vocalist Robert Smith has revealed some news about their forthcoming projects.

The frontman revealed there's not just one album in the works, "Actually I have prepared three albums, two of them more advanced. The first will be the one that we will release very soon. I think that the first single, or the whole album, will come out this Christmas, or a little earlier. It has the title of I work Live From the Moon and it will surely change its name."

Expanding on what the first record will sound like, Smith says, "If we talk about the first album, of unpublished songs, it has the style of The Cure, but much darker and emotional, I even think that I still have a hard time interpreting some of the new songs because they came out of the bowels, I let go them, I took everything I brought and I was inspired by transitions, losses, in the physical absence of my mother, my father, my brother ... what a pain."

Moving on to speak about the second album, Smith adds, "The second album, which I already have more advanced, refers to much freer pieces and with a more pronounced, stronger sound, and that to record them has to be live, yes, with that experience of putting together a concept based on the interpretation of the moment."

Speaking about the third record the band are working on, Smith explains, "The third, which is crazy, is a noise disc, with different aspects and environments, all based on experiences on a stage or in my paths, in situations where noise is present and to which we are so accustomed that we no longer pay attention to him."

Back in July Smith said he would feel "extremely bitter" if The Cure’s new album doesn’t come out this year.
