The Cure's Robert Smith has lashed out at both iTunes UK and his record label after the band's new remix EP Hypnagogic States hit the digital music service with an inflated price tag. "5 tracks for £7.99? For fucks sake!" rants Smith in an open letter to his label before complaining that the overpriced package is also missing a bonus remix of new song "The Only One." "Who the fuck is going to pay this and not feel ripped off?" Smith asks. The tracks on Hypnagogic States will appear in non-remixed form on the band's next album 4:13 Dream. Check out the album's track list and cover art, plus more from Smith's angry letter to his label, over at the Cure's site.
