Even though their new album 4:13 Dream isn’t due out until October 28th, the Cure played the entirety of their 13th album live during a free concert at Rome’s Piazza San Giovanni over the weekend. The performance was also broadcast on MTV. In addition to the four songs the band released as anticipatory singles, Robert Smith and company unveiled new songs like the poppy “The Real Snow White,” “Underneath the Stars” and “The Hungry.” Still, our favorite remains “The Perfect Boy,” as evidenced by the above video. To check out videos for all 13 4:13 tracks — plus their classic “Lovesong” — click here.
