The Cure are rumoured to have two releases readied for the upcoming Record Store Day to be revealed on Tuesday. The pre-sale listings are for 2 LP vinyl editions of The Cure’s 1990 remix compilation Mixed Up and a new compilation Torn Down both releases were mentioned on Amazon france and sharp eyed fans have been spreading the word.
Torn Down: Mixed Up Extras 2018 is the long awaited sequel to the Mixed Up compilation with Smith describing it as far back in 2012 as.
“There will be a Mixed Up 2 album coming out, probably this side of Christmas. Mixed Up 2. I’ve given songs to groups I really love, like Mogwai, Cranes and some other people. I thought the best thing to do would be to have some new remasters, but rather than by producers, I think that having groups that you love remix your songs is a much more interesting idea than producers remixing your songs. So Mixed Up 2 will be our favorite bands remixing Cure songs. It’s good. It’ll be this Christmas. Mogwai are doing ‘Faith.’ So good. It’ll be really good. Cure fans will love it.”
