Frank Padilla‘s message via Twitter.
Was already awesome to see, in person someone who helped me cope with so many things thru my teens and well into today, decades later. But to then see, knowing what a genuine person @RobertSmith seems to be, then turn and sing to his wife off stage was simply amazing! @thecure pic.twitter.com/EJJb9nkPS5

Last October we got the first taster with the psych-pop single
Pretty Boy featuring legend Johnny Marr on guitar.
And yesterday the former chief of Oasis teased new upcoming
music via a video fragment on his Twitter account. The clip – filmed
by himself – shows a group of string players playing a melody to an
unknown song, while a conductor stands in the middle of the room.
He shared it with the caption: “INGUT. String Session. Abbey Rd (April 28th, 2022).”
Headliner on Sunday at Hardwick Festival 2023 in the UK.
