The CURE – ” And Nothing Is Forever ” Live In Stockholm

Posted: October 17, 2022 in MUSIC

We have been waiting so many months since Robert Smith declared that The Cure would release their long-awaited follow-up to 2008’s “4:13 Dream, Songs of a Lost World”, before October. Seeing as the temperature has dropped 20 degrees since then, pumpkins now adorn doorsteps, and the calendar currently says October that isn’t happening. “I’d rather it just came out. I can’t stand the anticipation,” Smith said.

That doesn’t mean all hope is lost for new songs from the gothic-rock trailblazers. Turns out, the band has been playing some new material on their current tour. They’ve played unreleased tracks known as “Alone” and “Endsong,” and last night in Stockholm they played another new track titled “And Nothing Is Forever.”

Simon giving a little hug to Robert’s back at the very beginning of the song clearly announces something deeply personal for Robert. The Cure debuted a third new song during the set, “And Nothing Is Forever,” during the show in Sweden, All this material is expected to appear on the band’s next album, “Songs of the Lost World”, although no further details have yet been announced.

“And Nothing Is Forever” is a mid-tempo ballad with an extended instrumental opening. It’s musically reminiscent of The Cure’s classic “Pictures of You,” with frontman Robert Smith lamenting tender moments and teardrops: “it doesn’t really matter if you’ll say we’ll be together.”

The Cure’s current European tour features the return of guitarist/keyboardist Perry Bamonte, who hadn’t played with the band since 2004. “Songs of the Lost World” will be the band’s first new studio album since 2008
