Here's an awesome Christmas present for fans of The Cure. Ahead of next year's tour, the band have re-recorded one of their most cult favourite songs for an upcoming episode of Luther. Check it out below.
The 'Disintegration', 'Lullaby' and 'Boys Don't Cry' icons have re-recorded a version of 'A Few Hours After This' - a b-side taken from the 12 inch for The Head On The Door classic single, 'In Between Days'.
It will appear on the soundtrack to the upcoming Christmas special of the Idris Elba-starring crime drama, Luther - which was shown on BBC One last night and can be streamed here.
“I have been an obsessive fan of The Cure since I was 13," the show's creator Neil Cross told The Daily Record. “After we had finished shooting the second episode of this special, I phoned the producer and said there is this really obscure Cure track – an extra track on a 12-inch single called 'A Few Hours After This' – which I have always loved and think it would really go."
He added: “Long story short, we contacted Robert Smith and he re-recorded the song. That was one of those moments where I wanted to hijack the Tardis and go back and see my teenage self and say, ‘One day…’”
