The In Between Days singer has revealed the band will be going into the studio to finish their album "in six weeks time".

Robert Smith has given more information on The Cure's new album, which will follow-up 2008's 4:13 Dream.

The veteran rockers have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2019 alongside the likes of Radiohead, Roxy Music and The Zombies, and now their frontman has given an update on new material.

Speaking on SiriusXM’s Debatable show he told hosts Mark Goodman and Alan Light. “We’re going in about six weeks time to finish up what will be our first album in more than a decade. It’s very exciting times for us all around.”
