Watch The Cure debut two brand new tunes at their New Orleans show

Legendary 80’s alt rockers, The Cure have not released any new material since their 2008 LP 4:13 Dream, so you could imagine the buzzing excitement in an arena of ecstatic fans when the iconic group decided to debut not one, but two new tunes at their New Orleans performance last night. The tracks were posted on Overblown via fan recordings with videos of the concert and Soundcloud streams with a slightly better sound quality.

80’s lovers of sadness, rejoice! Legendary originators of Alt rock, The Cure have unveiled not one, but two beautiful new songs, check them out!

The songs are currently being named by fans based on what they heard and are indicative of The Cure’s seemingly infinite honey pot of songwriting finesse. On the first and slightly more upbeat tune, Step Into The Light, the legends bounce high over that cheery yet cynical tone that made them famous.

In the more morose balladry of It Can Never Be The Same, frontman, Robert Smith bled his signature, sombre drawl over the captivated audience and let us all know, he’s still got it. The Cure are due to head over to Australia to perform at Splendour In The Grass in July and have already started lining up some sideshows. Check out the tunes below and soak in the sad.
