The Cure’s new album for Robert Smith is 'a bit of a sore point'

At the beginning of February The Cure unveiled they were going to release a new album titled "4:14 scream" during 2014; it'll be the companion of their 2008 work called "4:13 dream" and they originally were meant to be released as a double album.

But during a recent interview given to XFM, Robert Smith clearly told he's not that happy with this new album and defined it a "a bit of a sore point".
Smith explained: "We're in a weird predicament in that I've finished singing and mixing an album that was made by a band that no longer exists. I'm not sure it happens that often. This band is trying to make an album with this lineup, and it's an album that I'm tempted to make, that's really different to anything else we've done. So trying to be convinced that I should release the second half of what is an effectively an album that came out in 2008, it's a bit of a sore point, really, to be honest, amongst this current lineup".

Smith, on the other hand, assured "4:14 scream" is coming out and it will be released during the summer via Fiction. He also added he probably won't play any of the songs featured in the album, live.
