Included are 20 demos, with a few taken from Robert Smith's home recordings as well as full-band rehearsals. These "new" cuts are all in instrumental form, so if anyone who wondered what 'Plainsong' sounded like before Smith tracked his traditional haunting vocals is in luck. Other rare gems include four unreleased songs, including the instrumentals 'Noheart' and 'Esten,' along with a vocal track called 'Delirious Night' and a Robert Smith solo song called 'Pirate Ship.'
Rounding out the collection on the third disc is basically the band's 1991 live album 'Entreat,' which culled music from July 1989 performances at London's Wembley Arena and was mainly used as a promotional item. That live album contained only eight tracks and was eventually given a limited release, but the new version presents the entire 'Disintegration' album played live in order. The added tracks are 'Plainsong,' 'Lovesong,' 'Lullaby' and 'The Same Deep Water as You.' The release would only get better if it came with some of Robert Smith's tears.
The Cure's most recent album was 2008's '4:13 Dream,' but that's not to say that Smith's been holed up with this reissue project since then. He recently provided vocals to 'Very Good Advice' on the soundtrack to Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland' as well as contributed vocals to the song 'Come to Me,' off of 65daysofstatic's album 'We Were Exploding Anyway,' which was released this week.
The reissued 'Disintegration' will be available June 8.
