Posted: August 7, 2022 in MUSIC

This is it, the holdout from The Cure catalogue that we’ve all been waiting for “Wish”. On vinyl, for the first time in a very long time.

Wish” released in April 1992 It was The Cure’s 9th studio album and reached Number 1 in the UK Album Chart on its release. It also reached Number 2 in the USA, where it was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Alternative Music Album category. The first single to be released from the album, “High” was released in March 1992 and reached #8 in the UK Singles chart, but the album is probably best known for the 2nd single, “Friday I’m In Love” which reached #6 in May 1992. The 3rd and final single from the album was “A Letter To Elise” which peaked at #28 in October 1992.

The demos from this new version include “Miss van Gogh” and “Now Is the Time.” The release will be available as a three-CD set, a double LP, and a single CD on October 7th when it will also be released digitally.

All remastered at Abbey Road by Robert Smith and Miles Showell. Plua a 3CD set mops up all the period bootleg and rare stuff you’ve been enjoying on inferior You-tube quality for the last 20 years (Lost Wishes, saucy instrumental takes) plus studio out-takes, live versions, single mixes. When Robert Smith does reissues, he does them properly.
