So file this one under the strange-but-true category… Pitchfork reported yesterday that Robert Smith of The Cure fame had teamed up with Crystal Castles to rework their track ‘Not In Love‘. You can hear the original on my writeup of Crystal Castles, but below is the new cut with Smith’s vocals.
‘Not In Love (ft. Robert Smith)’
[ mp3 ♫ ]
I’m really sortof weirded out by how much I like this. I enjoyed the original version quite a bit, but it does add something when you can tell what the words are, and Smith really does the tune justice.
The single is out December 6, which will feature the above song as an added bonus.
For the original: Crystal Castles – ‘Not In Love’.
