THE CURE has been covered countless times in the past (I know a thing or two about that), and yes, they've even had lullabies. Now, a brand-new collection of baby-centric reworkings of some Robert Smith and Co. classics is headed for nurseries on August 6, 2013. TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE ROCK STAR: LULLABY VERSIONS OF THE CURE will feature 13 of the band's biggest hits, all transformed into "lush instrumental versions" for baby. The crew at Roma Music Group just hit The Rock Father with full details, as the iTunes pre-orders just went live. Those who pre-order the album will get "Just Like Heaven" as an instant single. Hear it below...

Now, I said I knew a thing or two about CURE covers, and that's true. Back in 2004, I was the frontman for the band Saturday Action Theatre (a sorta "concept" project, actually) that released a largely-acoustic EP called REMAKES & SEQUELS. On that record was a cover of "Just Like Heaven," and I'm giving it to you right here as a FREE DOWNLOAD via Noisetrade. Maybe I need to do a new, 60s-styled record called THE ROCK FATHER SINGS! No? Well there's a rumor floating that Saturday Action Theatre might be coming back as some sort of metallic beast, but I know nothing about it.

For more rock delivered daily, including the latest in great music, cool toys, and fun for the whole family - "like" The Rock Father on Facebook.
