The Cure to release three-disc deluxe edition of Mixed Up

on April 26, 2018, 12:35am

On June 15th, The Cure will release a three-disc deluxe edition of their 1990 remix album, Mixed Up. Due out through Rhino Records, it boasts a remastered version of the original LP as well as a bunch of brand new remixes.

The first disc of the deluxe edition features all 11 original tracks as remastered by frontman Robert Smith. Disc two is comprised of newly remastered rare remixes from 1982-1990.

Lastly, the third is titled, Torn Down: Mixed Up Extras, and pulls together new remixes of tracks like “Three Imaginary Boys”, “Just One Kiss”, “Never Enough”, “The Drowning Man”, “Cut Here”. Meant as a sequel to Mixed Up, it was mixed by Smith in 2018 and issued earlier this month as an exclusive standalone Record Store Day release.

“I wanted a 3-disc package, but we didn’t have enough ‘historic’ remixes – for a while I thought the ‘extra-extras’ CD would be Cure songs re-mixed by choice artists, rather than by choice re-mixers…” Smith said of the deluxe edition in a statement. “That then got me thinking maybe I should have a go at one… so in early August 2017, I decided to experiment with ‘Three Imaginary Boys’. It is a pretty sparse multi-track; I pulled it apart at home and finished the initial re-mix in one session – and I really enjoyed the whole process”.

Speaking on Torn Down specifically, he added, “By choosing favourite songs rather than the usual singles, one of Smith’s objectives was to illustrate the variety of the Cure catalogue, and by October of 2017 working on songs in chronological release order, he had remixed entirely the 16 songs that appear on Torn Down: Mixed Up Extras 2018.

Also available that same release day are 2xLP vinyl sets of Mixed Up and Torn Down: Mixed Up Extras 2018.

In related news, The Cure will celebrate their 40th anniversary as a band with a pair of major performances in London this summer. They’re curating and headlining the Meltdown Festival in June, which they’ll follow-up in July with a massive gig at Hyde Park. They’re also working on new music.
