Robert Smith remixes Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds; The Cure tease North American tour
The Cure's Robert Smith has remixed new Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds single "Pretty Boy," giving it both a dreamier atmosphere and harder edge. “I was surprised and delighted when Noel asked me to remix this gorgeous song," says Smith, "and I had a lot of fun slowing it down and spacing it out - Cure drummer Jason Cooper gave me a great vibey drum track to play along with - and the rest just phased into place under the starry sky of my distant moon.” Listen to the remix and the original below.
