NEWS: Pictures of You: A compilation of Covers of songs by The Cure in aid of MIND, pre-order released with covers from Julianne Regan, Hamish Brown & Andrew Eaton-Lewis, Iceblynk and Lunar Bird

Today, we announce Pictures of You: A compilation of covers of songs by The Cure in aid of MIND. Inspired by our ten days of the Cure back in February we put the call out for cover versions and the response was overwhelming.

Pre-orders are now open on Bandcamp today, Friday the 7th of July on the anniversary of The Cure’s first ever gig. Those who pre-order for £5 will receive, Hamish Brown & Andrew Eaton-Lewis‘s take on ‘Let’s Go To Bed’ a mischievous synth pop stomper with a nods to Depeche Mode and Human League , Julianne Regan’s haunting version of ‘The Drowning Man’, Iceblynk‘s glorious tumbling gaze pop rework of ‘The Exploding boy’ and Welsh band Lunar Bird‘s dreamy redrawing of ‘Fascination Street’, ahead of the full release on Friday 4th of August. All profits from the release will go to the Mind mental health charity.

It’s an incredibly eclectic selection of covers of songs by The Cure that takes in straight ahead takes, synth pop reinterpretations, EDM reimaginings, grunge rock reworks, post-punk noise and haunting dream pop takes, with just the right amount of weirdness along the way. It’s all done with affection for one of Britain’s best bands!

It follows the release of our R.E.M. covers compilation on Bandcamp raising £5000 for Help Musicians in 2021, winning the endorsement of the band in the process and last year’s Kylie Minogue compilation that made over £1000 in aid of Macmillan Cancer charity,

Thank you to all of the bands, artists and labels involved. Plus Kevin Alvir for the fantastic cover artwork.
