The Cure to Reissue 'Wish' with Unreleased Tracks for 30th Anniversary

The Cure are reissuing their ninth studio LP, Wish, for the album's 30th anniversary.

Originally released in 1992, the album became the band's best-selling album. For the reissue, the album has been remastered at Abbey Road Studios by Robert Smith and Miles Showell, with many bonus tracks included. 24 of the bonus tracks, which include demos, instrumentals, and rare 12″ mixes, have not been officially released.

Additionally, the Lost Wishes EP, which previously had been available only as a mail-order cassette, will be available on CD and digitally for the first time. Ahead of the reissue, “Uyea Sound” from that cassette is available to stream now.

The Wish reissue is out Oct. 7. Available physical formats include a 3CD set, double LP, and single CD. You can pre-order here.

In recent Cure news, the band's longtime bassist Simon Gallup announced on Facebook that he was leaving the group back in August 2021. However, he officially returned only months later, in October. Gallup explained the decision only happened because he "just got fed up of betrayal," and he deleted his original departure post.
