Os The Cure anunciaram no Twitter o lançamento de um novo álbum de remixes, Torn Down, e uma edição especial em vinil de Mixed Up.

A reedição de Mixed Up, o álbum de remixes lançado pelos The Cure em 1990, foi anunciada na sequência do Record Store Day. Este dia tem o propósito de celebrar as lojas de discos independentes e a sua cultura. Juntando artistas e fãs em lojas de música no mundo inteiro, muitas bandas agendam lançamentos para a data, que este ano se assinala a 21 de abril.

Os The Cure prepararam um set de três discos. Este inclui o álbum original da década de 90, remasterizado pelo vocalista Robert Smith e incluindo 11 clássicos, entre os quais Lullaby, Close To Me, Pictures of You, Lovesong e Why Can’t I Be You?; uma coletânea de mixed up extras; e uma sequência de Mixed Up, com 16 canções remasterizadas. Este LP duplo, intitulado Torn Down, conta com reedições de faixas como Three Imaginary Boys, Just One Kiss, Never Enough, The Drowning Man, Cut Here e mais.

Ambos os lançamentos serão limitados a 7,750 cópias no mundo inteiro. Ao escolher canções favoritas em vez dos singles mais comuns, Smith quis apelar à variedade do catálogo da banda. A escolha para a capa de Torn Down recaiu sobre um autorretrato pintado a óleo durante o verão de 1990 que, originalmente, era para ter figurado na edição de Mixed Up.

O disco Torn Down, juntamente com as 11 remisturas inéditas de Mixed Up, encontram-se nesta tripla coletânea que chega às lojas no dia 15 de junho.
