The keyboardist revealed yesterday (August 22) that he had "just delivered the 27 cues for my first movie score" on Twitter.
Very exciting, and I'll let you know more when I can. What a journey," he said further.
“Please tell us more,” replied one fan, with O’Donnell revealing that he “can’t.”
The announcement comes as The Cure have been working on two albums, the first of which will hopefully be out before the band's October European and UK tour. “The first Cure album is relentless doom and gloom. It’s the doomiest thing that we’ve ever done. The second one is upbeat, and my [solo] one won’t be out until next year,” vocalist Robert Smith said at the BandLab NME Awards 2022.
Catching up with NME once again in May, Smith said 'Songs Of A Lost World’ was “almost finished.”

Essentially, it’s a 12-track album. "It's there, it’s kind of half-mixed and half-finished,” he explained. “It’s a weird thing." It’s kind of evolved over the last two years. It hasn’t always been a good thing to be left alone with it. You pick at it, like picking at seams, and everything falls apart. "
Smith went on: “It’ll be worth the wait." I think it’s the best thing we’ve done, but then I would say that. I’m not doing an Oasis when I say that, "IT’S THE BEST FOOKIN’ ALBUM". A lot of the songs are difficult to sing, and that’s why it’s taken me a while. "
