Prior to his trip down under, The Cure’s Robert Smith teamed up with Irish electronic outfit The Japanese Popstars for their sophomore LP, Controlling Your Allegiance. As slicing up eyeballs points out, the end result of this collaboration, which comes in the form of a track titled “Take Forever”, was released as a single today, and you can now stream it below.
Controlling Your Allegiance hits U.S. and UK shores next week via Astralwerks. In support of the release, the Japanese Popstars will tour both countries extensively this summer. Find their tour schedule below the stream.
