The Twilight Sad have been trying their best to work with Robert Smith for over three years. It began when fellow Scottish prog-rocker Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite sent the band an email from The Cure frontman professing his fandom. They initially tried to have him remix a track for their remix release of No One Can Ever Know, but Robert Smith was occupied with the Cure on the road. Then, after releasing their 2014 album Nobody Wants to be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave, they took another shot and emailed Smith to see if he’d want to cover a song for a double A-side for the final single, “It Never Was the Same”.

“I couldn’t believe it when he replied, saying he’d like to cover ‘There’s a Girl in the Corner’,recalled Twilight Sad guitarist Andy MacFarlane. “He sent it over when we were playing San Francisco in March, and we listened to it over and over in the van, driving out after the gig. Hearing someone that we’ve all looked up to for so long sing and play one of our songs is definitely one of the most surreal moments we’ve ever had.” Take a listen here now .
