The Cure have unveiled a previously unreleased track called “Another Happy Birthday” during the first of three shows at the Hollywood Bowl on Tuesday (May 23).
The song appears to be a track that dates all the way back to 1997. Smith described it in an interview with MTV as “unlike anything The Cure have done before. It’s not a verse-chorus-verse type of song, but more fluid.” Though the song is known to have existed in demo form since then, it hasn’t been officially released.
It’s unknown if this is the same song from the ‘90s or if it will appear on The Cure’s long-awaited new album Songs of a Lost World, which still doesn’t have a release date.
Listen to the song below.
