The Cure returning to the studio / MORE re-releases

The Cure is heading back into the studio:

The Cure plans to hit the studio in January to record its next album, according to a post from frontman Robert Smith on the group's Web site. "We are still on course for a summer release, as it's all in the preparation," he said.

This news item is interesting not because they'll be heading into the studio (to record album #13) but more because of what's finally going to be re-released:
Smith also said that he is close to completing the next phase of the band's expanded reissue series, which will include 1984's "The Top," 1985's "The Head on the Door" and 1987's "Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me, as well as "The Blue Sunshine," a 1983 album Smith and Siouxsie and the Banshees bassist Steve Severin created under the name the Glove. The sets should be out by next spring.

Excellent! Looking forward to The Glove's Blue Sunshine getting the deluxe re-issue treatment.
