The Cure are to release new singles on the 13th of each month leading up to the release of their 13th studio album.

The Cure, one of the most revered British bands of the past quarter-century, will release four A & B side singles, one each month. It began on May 13th 2008, leading up to the release of their thirteenth studio album, as yet untitled, which will be out on Suretone/Geffen Records September 13th. It will be the band’s first album of new music since 2004’s self titled album The Cure. Physical and digital singles will be available for purchase in store and on all digital partners.

Why the 13th of each month? The forthcoming album is The Cure’s thirteenth studio album… A lucky number indeed!

First single The Only One includes the b-side “NY Trip”; second single “Freakshow” (released June 13th) includes the b-side “All Kinds Of Stuff”; neither b-side will appear on the album. Both tracks were produced by Robert Smith and Keith Uddin. July 13th and August 13th singles will be announced shortly…

The Cure’s new single, The Only One, was released so goddamn fast that there was no time to shoot a promo video for it. There was, however, time to send an MTV crew to the studio to record a rather special live take of the song.

The Cure are currently on tour and will be playing a number of live dates in the UK this summer.

Led as always by lead singer/guitarist Robert Smith, the Cure line-up comprises longtime members bass player Simon Gallup, drummer Jason Cooper and, back in the band for a third time, guitarist Porl Thompson.

The Cure first formed in southern England in 1976 as Easy Cure. In 1978 the ‘Easy’ was dropped, and The Cure was signed to the Fiction label. In May 1979 their debut album Three Imaginary Boys was released to great acclaim.
