Celebrating 40 years of the iconic track.
Experimental artist Alva Noto, aka Carsten Nicolai, is releasing a new cover of The Cure’s 1980 track ‘A Forest’, via his own Noton imprint.
Focusing in on the sense of longing imbued in the original song, Nicolai crafts an expansive, deconstructed version with a “dreamlike wash of sound and distant strings.”
“The Cure’s ‘A Forest’ has always reminded me of the feeling of ‘coming home’ … and I can’t think of another song which could be more representative of the band than this single”, explains Nicolai.
A limited art edition, which features a drawing by Nicolai, will be also available at Eigen + art Gallery later this year.
