    The Cure will mark the 30th anniversary of their album Wish by releasing an expanded deluxe reissue on October 7th.

    Remastered by The Cure’s Robert Smith and Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios, the 3xCD/2xLP set spans 45 tracks, including the original 1992 album plus 21 previously unreleased demos. Also included are the four tracks from The Cure’s 1993 mail-order only cassette Lost Wishes, which have never appeared on CD or digitally, as well as a previously unreleased song called “A Wendy Band” from the 1992 Manor Studio sessions, an alternate mix of live favorite “From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea,” and a previous unheard live version of “End” from 1992. Below, you can hear “Uyea Sound,” as it appeared on Lost Wishes.

    Pre-orders for the Wish deluxe set are now ongoing. You can find the full tracklist below.

    Also in October, The Cure will embark on an extensive 44-date, 22-country UK/European tour. Smith previously said that he hoped to release the band’s long-in-the-works new album, Songs of a Lost World, before kicking off the tour.
