Noel Gallagher teases Robert Smith remix of ‘Pretty Boy’ that “sounds exactly like The Cure”.
Speaking with Huw Stephens on BBC Radio Wales Noel Gallagher explained how his team-up with Robert Smith and guitarist came about.
“‘Pretty Boy’ as it was unfolding became reminiscent of the golden age of The Cure,” he said.
“And it was just one of those crazy ideas that one tends to have in the middle of the night, thinking, ‘I wonder if Robert Smith get involved. I wonder if I can get hold of him’.”
“I asked if he’d get involved and sent him the track and he loved it. He did the remix. And I loved it. I’d never met him before. I’d never conversed with him. But I was always a fan of The Cure and the remix sounds exactly like the Cure. Yeah, it turns out he is a bit of a dude!’”
