In an expletive laden e-mail to the company, posted in its entirety on the Cure's official blog, Smith says iTunes "has managed to f--- this up to another level!" before advising fans who are easily "offended by colourful language" to look away.
"I f---ing despair again," Smith writes. "'Hypnagogic States' EP is now up on iTunes ... 5 Tracks for £7.99? For f---'s sake! And the package is completely missing the extra bonus track (65DOS Alt Remix of 'The Only One'). Who the f--- is going to pay this and not feel totally ripped off? It's not a f---ing album! It's a 5 Track EP. This is so totally wrong. Why is it so incredibly difficult to get anything done right? Please fix this now. I am posting this as I feel upset."
Smith goes on to tell fans to only buy the EP after the price is corrected to £4.00 or less.
Meanwhile, Cure fans will have to wait another four weeks to get their mitts on the band's long-awaited new album, '4:13 Dream.' Smith also says that a "dark album companion piece" may follow '4:13 Dream' before Smith's 50th birthday, which is April 2.1.
