The Cure detail ‘epic’ new album, confirm release of Hyde Park concert film this summer

It looks like this album may be the band's last

The Cure have detailed their “epic” highly anticipated forthcoming album, unveiling that it may be the seasoned band’s final full-length release. Over the weekend, the band’s longtime director Tim Pope also confirmed the release of their full Hyde Park performance as a concert film this summer.

“I personally think it will be the last Cure record,” keyboardist Roger O’Donnell explained to SiriusXM. “I know it’s been said a million times before, but at this stage in our lives…”

Despite the bittersweet news, O’Donnell went on to describe the album’s sound, explaining that “it’s epic, I can say that about it. I mean, playing it and sitting there and listening back to it… everybody’s jaws were dropping.”

Additionally, director Pope revealed on Twitter that, “our film of Hyde Park will hit cinemas in early summer. A global release, it marks the first time to see The Cure on the big screen since Orange.”
