With The Cure enjoying some downtime after its tour in support of "Bloodflowers," frontman Robert Smith is preparing to unveil a new track he penned and recorded with guitarist Reeves Gabrels.
Smith and Gabrels (a producer and songwriter best known for his work as David Bowie's guitarist) teamed up to write and record "Yesterday's Gone," which is currently available for download at icast.com.
The two have paired before, first to write the 1997 Cure song "Wrong Number," and more recently to record the track "A Sign From God" for the soundtrack to "Orgazmo."
Spokespeople for the project say that Smith and Gabrels wrote and recorded "Yesterday's Gone" in London and Los Angeles, and enlisted Godhead's Jason Miller to provide backing vocals.
Users who head to icast.com to download the track will have to play Gabrel's "Sacred Squall Of Now" or "Night In Amnesia" or The Cure's "Bloodflowers" within icast's "icaster" to access the new track. For
