The Cure’s Robert Smith did another round of charity for the holiday season, this time for the 24 Hour Improv 2020 event to benefit Letters to Santa.
In black and white at his home studio, Smith performed three songs from The Cure’s 1981 album Faith, which he notes is about to celebrate its 40th anniversary.
The somber set begins with a beautiful rendition of “The Holy Hour”, followed by a rare display of the Cure frontman on keys for “The Funeral Party”, and finishing with the sorrowful song “The Drowning Man”.
This benefit performance for Letters to Santa of three of The Cure’s saddest songs is a lovely present to fans worldwide.
