Robert Smith Talks About The Cure's 4:14 Dream
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.01.2014

In a new blog post on The Cure's official website, Robert Smith spoke about the band's upcoming album 4:14 Dream. Here are highlights:

On how the "Dream" project started: In 2007, The Cure (me, Simon, Jason and Porl Thompson) rehearsed and recorded 33 songs with the intention of creating a double CD album containing approximately 2 hours of music. 13 songs on each disc, most with words and vocals, but a few with words and no vocals (IE. 'instrumentals with words'...!) - The running order was fluid as I was constantly rearranging the order in which the 33 A4 'Master Sheets' were stuck on the wall of the control room...choice changed depending on the progress of the recording. We planned to release 4 of the album songs as "singles" plus 4 "b-sides" leaving a "margin of error" (should we need it) of three songs.

On the first album: Instead I compiled "4:13 Dream" (13 songs with words and vocals), and it was this single CD album, along with the 4 other "B-side" songs accompanying the 4 (remixed) singles, that was released in 2008."

On what went wrong: "Compiling a single CD album required a different approach (for one thing there was no longer the time to 'spread out' and connect the different moods as I had originally intended). d as a consequence a number of (my favorite!) slower songs and instrumental pieces were left unfinished and unreleased."
